Customer Question
i recently had a child...
i recently had a child from a SFC that is now in Kuwait. A paternity test was done, and he is the father. The child support papers have been filed but not a court order yet because he has failed to send in his dependent information to receive credit for his other dependents. He has failed to present documents, has not given me any support for my daughter, and will be in Kuwait for another 6mon-1yr. what do I need to do to get financial support for her? CS stated its nothing they can do until he returns to the states. please help me in any way that you can with information on what the next steps that I can do to get help. I have all documents and he knows the child is his.

Its true...Under the Service Members Civil Relief Act, he can delay the court hearing while he is deployed. There is not anything that CS can do about that.

That said, if he is the dad, I would recommend you contact his commanding officer (battalion or squadron commander) and request the commander assist. Each service has rules that require support of dependents...it may be the commander can help you with this.

so do the US Army offer assistance such as BAH or any financial support or something that someone told me unitl he comes back to the states, and until CS can proceed? 2) Are dependents listed on the LES form? 3) Whom could I contact so that his dependent form can be forwarded to CS Agency 4) If I do contact the commander how do I find out whom to reach in finding out who the commander is?
Military Lawyer: P. Simmons, Military Lawyer replied 8 years ago
LES will not list dependents. YOu need ot contact his Commanding Officer. If you let me know what unit he is in I can get you info on the commander

Here is the army regulation on support...read it and you will know what you rate
