I am an Army spouse and my husband has recently been creating a financial strife within our family. I live in MS with our son and he in GA. He's been there since this past Sept. Our son has a array of disabilities such as autism, adhd, anxiety, ocd, and sleep disorders. Since he's been stationed at Ft. Gordon, he has consistently overdraftig the bank account we use, and in his words, "wouldn't be doing it if we were there." This past month he opened a new bank account that I have no access to and has deposited his entire paycheck there, effectively cutting me off from the major income that covers our bills.
Now, I do work, part time because our son is 5 and has multiple therapy appointments a week, and his income does not cover my housing or utility bills. He got on-base housing after I told him not to because I knew my son and I would not be moving-it would have been too hard on him and his anxiety, which is already severe, would have been 100 times worse. So because he did that, we don't receive his BAH, either. And the only asset we have is a vehicle that I have maintained for the past two years, but the payments came out of his check.
I'm out of options and seriously considering a divorce
. He isn't a help for anything concerning our household finances or our child (even signed his custodial rights over when he joined the Army), and now with his removal of finances, I am at a loss. Do I have a legal standing here?
