A Filipina woman was living with a US Navy person in a consensual
A Filipina woman was living with a US Navy person in a consensual situation in the Philippines. He had promised her marriage. She became pregnant and bore a son. When he learned of the pregnancy, the Military member disavowed the child, abandoned the woman, got himself transferred to Japan where he is now living with a Japanese woman, under similar circumstances. His name, location, command, etc. are known. A DNA test will verify paternity, and the woman was not sexually active with any other person during their cohabitation.Does the Filipino child have any claim against his father, the US Military or US Government? Is there any way of claiming compensation? What steps are available for the child? Who should be contacted locally, in the Philippines. Are there other agencies that can help?I am a retired USAF Major, I am not involved in a relationship with these individuals other than trying to help them obtain some justice.Thank you for your help.

I was married to a WWII vet for 29 years. We married in 1980. We divorced in 2009 because of documentable abuse. At the time of his death he was receiving Aid And Attendance.

I do understand the risks of her not paying, but that I am not worried about I am more worried about when my clearance comes for renewal it and messing something up. If this question doesn't need to go into Military law please move it. Thanks
I was convicted of a felon (Possession with Intent to DistributeView more military law questions
I was convicted of a felon (Possession with Intent to Distribute Cocaine) 15 years ago. That was my one and only conviction. I recently met a man who we are both completely interested in pursuing a relationship, yet he is a Naval Officer working on Nuclear Reactors and his job requires high levels of security clearances. Everyone he is related to, lives with, or is in an intimate relationship with gets a background check. As a result, he feels that he can lose his job if he even dates me (let alone marries someday). Is this true? I am working on getting a Pardon for my crimes, and then Expungement. Do I have to wait until all of that is clear before I can even date him?
