I am the step mother of a military child. Her mother is

I am the step mother of a military child. Her mother is active duty military. My husband and his ex have been divorced since 2009. They had specific order for the care of their daughter after divorce. She was awarded physical custody and child support. The mother who is a Major 20 years constantly uses her military position to violate the order. Since 2012 their daughter has been living with us and she refuses any support. Prior to then she would have family and friends care for the child. The divorce states she is to give my husband first right of refusal. In 2012 We hired a lawyer because she left their daughter with a friend again. We got he back and kept her for 5 months. All the while mind you support comes out of his check. She came back after the 5 months and resumed her regular life leaving the child with us. Still no support. She eventually 6 months later told us she was being deployed for 18 months. We had a lawyer draft an agreement for temporary modification for support and custody of Harlie. The agreement included the money she owed for the 5 months as well as return money and money for the 18 months or till she returns. The repayment would end June 2014 and reduce to $1596 till she gets back. She came back May 2014 and made the last payment for the repayment but again never got her daughter back. At that time she lived like 30 minutes away. 5 months later she took a job in N Carolina. She has been there since Jan 2015. We just recently found out she sold her house Sept 205. She still has never came back to get her daughter. She only returns the money that comes out my husbands check. She refuses to pay any support or contribute even school clothes. It has now been 4 years and she states she is retiring ans wants to come get her daughter. Do we have to give her back to her or what can we do. Can we collect the money she owes also. We just don't have the money to keep hiring lawyers everytime she says something or do something. Shouldn't the military hold her accoutable for taking care or her child. We do we have to pay to make he pay.

I am researching UCMJ offenses. I found your response few

I am researching UCMJ offenses. I found your response few years back that article 92 dereliction of duty statute of limitations is 5 years. Is that during wartime as well (Iraq/Afghanistan)? Or is it a capital offense because it is wartime? The internet searches I have done are unclear as to how dereliction of duty is treated specifically in wartime.

I am ex military and currently married to a CPT in the Army.

Hello, I am ex military and currently married to a CPT in the Army. I have been actively trying to divorce him for at least six years now. From what I understand I am entitled to a portion of his retirement, as we have been married now for 15 years. He doesn't want to sign the divorce papers because he doesn't want me to get any of his retirement. What options do I have in order to end this long ordeal? Does he have a choice in the matter of the retirement? Also since we have been separated if he draws BAH as being married with a dependant and we are legally separated does that BAH belong to me and my child, whom I have physical custody of?
