Thank you for trusting your question to JA today. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of law practice and over 20 years of experience in the legal field. I’m happy to be of assistance.

You would have to request command to separate you. If you have already submitted a family care plan, they can't do the involuntary separation process based on failure to do so. Instead, they'll either have to separate you involuntarily because your family life is interfering with military service or based on your voluntary request.

You certainly have the facts here for command to do either of those, but unlike the voluntary separation for pregnancy there is not a right to separation based on family hardship. What I mean by that is that the commander has the discretion on whether or not to process it. You approach your command, give them the facts about your family situation and the day care issue, and then state that with your dual military situation you are requesting that they process a Chapter 5-8. The commander can either process it or refuse. If they refuse, there isn't anything that you can do to force the situation.

If you have any further questions, please let me know. I invite follow up questions, so use REPLY for those. If you have no further questions then good luck going forward and please do not forget to rate my service with a top-three rating so that I receive credit for working with you today. Also, feel free to request me in the future, if you have questions concerning a different matter.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
