Sir, My husband's command is charging him

Hi sir,My husband's command is charging him for adultery because someone he dates while we were separated came forward. We reconciled while I was pregnant and there is a chance that he may not be the father. They also put on his charge sheet that he knowingly took paternity leave for a child that wasn't his. My husband is the legal father and is on the birth certificate and Marine Corps order reads that if a Marines spouse gives birth they rate paternity leave. The command reached out to the man I dated while we were separated and questioned him about my son and disclosed information regarding my son's illness from a medical letter my sons doctor wrote for my husband to get a leave extension. They also lied to him and said my husband was being charged for sleeping with 17 yr olds which is not true. This person because of this is threatening to call child protective services on my husband and I for our 4 kids and if he is found to be the father sue me for custody. I had placed a call and was told they would be told to stop and they did not stop. I feel like they have violated my rights. Also, the person who made the call was not the investigating officer. Someone suggested writing the IG or my congressman. Any advice? My son is only 7 wks old. I just received his vital documents in the mail to turn in.

there- I live in the state of Maryland and I have a child

Hi there- I live in the state of Maryland and I have a child with a retired military officer who is not listed on the birth certificate. He has never paid any child support for her, and she is now 3yrs old. I am wondering if I am able to request for child support from him even though my current spouse has signed her birth certificate because he has been her only "Father" since the day she was born and the retired veteran is not in her life at all...?

I did not know that my daughter's father was married. Obviously,

I did not know that my daughter's father was married. Obviously, I had my baby. He has refused to put my daughter on DEERS/Tricare with the excuse of if his chain of command finds out that he will be kicked out on a bad conduct discharge. So, as events have been unfolding he ended being placed in the hospital to receive some mental health help because he has anxiety from his life falling apart and my requests to have a private agreement with one of the conditions being he enroll her on DEERS/Tricare. He has signed and notarized the agreement and sent it to me. I am not sure what I should do at this point. I would never want his career to be in question because of a mistake he made, but at the same time I don't think my daughter should suffer for his bad decisions. I've gone above and beyond to be accommodating. Its hard for me to believe him because I was in the military and grew up on post and my father was a commander and I've never seen someone really get kicked out for enrolling his illegitimate child on DEERS/Tricare program. Lost. Please help me.

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.
