If your partner is transitioning out of the Australian Defence Force (ADF), there are lots of resources to help you navigate the process. ADF members are encouraged to involve a family member or trusted support to engage in many of the transition services and support.

This includes:

  • The ADF Member and Family Transition Guide – explaining the transition process, administrative requirements, employment assistance services and other support available.
  • ADF Member and Family Transition Seminars – ADF families are encouraged to attend with ADF members to access seminars across Australia (in person and virtual) at any time in their Defence career
  • The Partner Employment Assistance Program provides support and some funding for eligible ADF partners for initiatives aimed at improving employability
  • The Department of Veterans’ Affairs has a range of services and support, including access to Veteran Service Officers, available. Learn how to access these through the transition support webpage.
