He has been serving for 23 years,we were together for 3 years then married in 2003. We have no children together. Both our kids are adults. I have a difficult time understanding the procedures. Medical wise I use ventilator when I sleep and have asthma which requires me to use an inhaler and nebulizer. Will I loose my Tricare Prime when the divorce is finalized? I am now considered a senior. There is a 16 years difference in age. My husband being the younger.JA: OK. The Military Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No. I fear it would hurt me financially.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: He agreed to pay me 2400 till our separation of 1 year is over. He said that his deployment of 9 months last year plus his ILE classes of 3 month this year might be considered 1 year separation. We are being very civil about this divorce. I just want to make sure I am getting what I need out of this divorce. He agreed that I should stay in the house we bought till the separation is over in order for me to save. He will pay the utilities and the rest of the car payment which he bought for me. Next year it would be payed off. We are planning to sell our house in TX and NC after all this is over.JA: OK.
