I am very sorry to hear this and I will do my best to get you the information needed.
So basically, the ServiceMember's Civil Relief Act insulates a deployed military personnel from having to deal with civil litigation when deployed- this includes divorce issues. The public policy consideration behind the law is that the service member cannot be distracted with legal concerns while overseas. This can do an injustice to the family left behind, which is why each branch of the service has enacted legal regulation that requires a military member to support their family.
For the Army, this is codified at Regulation 608-99; for the Coast Guard, it is the Commandant Notice 1000 Chapter 8.M; for the Marine Corps, it is CH 15, and for the Navy it is Milpersman 1754.
Basically they all require the service member to provide support to their dependent spouse/children. Failure to do so can result in military punishment, including nonjudicial punishment.
A brief overview here
It should be noted that a spouse is still entitled to military support for housing and other necessities, given their status as an abandoned military spouse. Please see that information here
So basically, one would need to contact the service member's commander to reach a resolution (support agreement), the local JAG, and then the Inspector General.
Hopefully this helps to provide some information so they can get the support to which one is entitled.
