My spouse got divorced from his former spouse after 21 years of marriage. She was awared 1/2 his retirement, spousal support, and child support in the total of over $3,000 monthly. My husband retired 15 days after the divorce was final, which she knew he was approved for retirement 11 months before the divorce was final, and started receiving $1,440 monthly payment but still furnished her with all his retirement proceedings leaving us to struggle on just my pay for the past 3 years. He finally woke up after the fact that we had to foreclosure on my home in another state because I can't afford to take care of our now growing family of four. He found a job 6 months ago but now we have child care expenses in the amount of roughly $2,200 monthly, this doesn't include the monthly necessities like diapers, milk, etc.. Still leaving us to struggle. What can we do to get this fixed? I am currently active duty military.
