I am currently going through a divorce and my soon to be ex

Customer Question

Hello. I am currently going through a divorce and my soon to be ex husband is active duty in the Army. I have been having issues with the housing allowance I'm entitled to every month as he's only been giving me $200. I was able to contact his chain of command. How do I find out how much I'm entitled to. Also, because we live in different states, will that affect the amount?
JA: Are you overseas or stateside?
Customer: Im in California He lives in Washington state
JA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?
Customer: Yes. He said that he is not to give me no less than what I'm entitled to however I don't know how much that is. Also, should I proceed with the divorce or should I wait till this matter gets resolved?
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Not at this time.
