You cannot be forced to stay anywhere you do not feel comfortable. However, that is with regards ***** ***** and not to the children. Obviously, you aren't not going anywhere without the children. First thing, there is no guarantee that the PCA will be granted. You have not stated how long you have lived in North Dakota but I am going to assume that it is longer than six months. As such, North Dakota would have venue over any custody action that may be filed. To move to a different state, if your husband would not agree, you would then have to file a petition to relocate to in your case California. The judge would have to make a decision and ultimately decide where the children would best be. There is no guarantee that they would make you stay nor allow you to leave. It would always be best if this is something that could be negotiated by the parties.

He's not willing to negotiate. I've tried he wants to do 50/50 but it's hard when we moving to different states we have married 13yrs and been here for 6yrs
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Venue meaning what that if he gets his orders canceled and gets the PCA then he wins and stays in North Dakota which are you telling me will be a hard fight so I wouldn't win is that right

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I'm trying to back to California with the kids and he wanting to try to stay here in minot or go to Colorado
Military Lawyer: P. Simmons, Military Lawyer replied 7 months ago

You want to know if he will PCA?

Ask Your Own Military Law Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
If they will grant him the PCA for minot even though he has orders to Colorado
Military Lawyer: P. Simmons, Military Lawyer replied 7 months ago

That is up to the AF. That is, he can certainly make the request to modify his orders...but if orders are cut, then this has to go to HQAF for approval.
Will they approve? You have to ask the AF that question. But certainly it is possible.

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.

With him having an affair what will possibly happen to him
Military Lawyer: P. Simmons, Military Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Is his command aware of the allegations? If so, have they initiated an investigation?

Ask Your Own Military Law Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
they are aware I told them with my audio and text
Military Lawyer: P. Simmons, Military Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Thank you
In that case? I doubt he goes anyplace until this is resolved. If the AF is on notice of criminal misconduct? It is common that the command keeps him until the case is resolved.

What will happen?

If the allegations are proven true? He will be separated from the AF with a bad discharge

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.

They are true he admitted to them so he will be discharged
Military Lawyer: P. Simmons, Military Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Most likely? Yes...after he is punished, he will be discharged. If there is evidence of this type of criminal misconduct, my experience is that the AF will separate him.

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
