My husband was assigned to Ft. Hamilton under compassionate reassignment after I was diagnosed with cancer. We are currently living together but he is hardly home and We have a daughter which he hardly helps out with physically or economically. Having him here has been more of a burden than a help.

My sister's husband has been cheating off and on for years.

My sister's husband has been cheating off and on for years. Allot the red flags are up. My sister caught him texting and calling several women. He just got back from a 6-month voluntary deployment to SE Asia. He asked for a divorce the day after he returned. He wants it quick and easy. Would the Air Force Reserve do an investigation? There is a good chance he is cheating with another person in the Air Force. If they did an investigation, could what they find out be shared with the divorce attorneys?JA: Are you overseas or stateside?Customer: statesideJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: No. We dont know who to talk toJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so. I am just trying to help my sister. He has done other things like abuse animals, threaten to kill my sister, saying he could get away with it because he was a police officer. Everyone has seen him hurt animals, but there is not proof he threatened my sister.

I recently posted a question about the parents of an under

I recently posted a question about the parents of an under aged girl who stated she was 19 but I was informed later in the conversation that she was 16. I never asked for any sexual favors and I told her immediately that I was not gonna risk talking to her. I go my answer that I was ok in that situation, but what I forgot to add was that her father wanted me to send him money as a way to settle this outside of court and not go to the Anchorage police department. He then informed me that it was for "custody cancelling fees" I have no idea what he means by that but since I know I'm in the clear. How do I get him off me and stop threating me with the fee charges? What do I say to him? By the way I'm in the Army

Can my husband take my child if we are divorced?

My ex husband will be stationed in Japan by December. We are already divorced according to him but there is no final custody yet that I have received so we shared our son. I got 4 days and he got 3 days. He has been paying child support but he hired a lawyer so he can take my son with him and his new girlfriend in Japan. I am scared right now. I don't wanna lose my son. I have a full time job, go to college, never do drugs and just take care of my son. Should I worry? What are my rights? Can he just take off with my son to Japan? What can I do to keep my son with me here in California?
