Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years military law
I am sorry to have to bear bad news. Having a pregnant girlfriend who lives away from you is not a basis for a discharge
Even if you were to marry, the fact you have a pregnant wife
who lives apart from you would not be a basis for a discharge.
Now...if there are medical complications with the pregnancy and your wife or unborn child require your presence to assist, that CAN be a basis for a hardship transfer or discharge.
Under the rules in the Navy
, if you have a close relative who is in need of your assistance, that can be a basis to have a hardship transfer or discharge approved.
You would need proof...you would need to have her doctor write a letter detailing the complications with the pregnancy and stating your presence is needed to ensure the health of your wife or child (this assumes that you marry her prior to filing the request). If that is the case...if you are married and you have a letter from her doctor that states that she needs you present? That can be enough to get a transfer or discharge.
But the fact she is pregnant and living apart from you, in and of itself, is not going to be a basis for discharge.
Let me know if you have more questions...happy to help if I can
