Recent Food Allowance questions

I was looking for information in regards XXXXX XXXXX between

I was looking for information in regards XXXXX XXXXX between parents, one being in the military and one being a civilian. I am in the Navy and am going thru a divorce and having custody issues with my son who is 18 months old. I am looking for information on laws in Indiana regarding the probability of me obtaining custody and information on child support if custody is not obtained. The child was born in wedlock. We were married in Indiana and then my son was born in Virginia after we had been in Virginia over a year. When we separated she took him to Indiana. When she is working she leaves him with my parents and when she does have him she takes him to a baby sitter. Any help that you can give would be much appreciated.

I was accused of altering my physiology on a routine

Hello, I was accused of altering my physiology on a routine military c/i polygraph. I did no such thing but about 2 months after the exam they pulled my access to my work building (did not revoke my clearance) and I was told I was being investigated. About a month after they pulled my access, my commander approved and endorsed my voluntary separation package. I am now officially discharged and not in the IRR or reserves. I haven't heard anything and it's been 8 months since the polygraph. Does this mean most likely case closed or is there still room for concern?
