Customer Question
I got pregnant last...

I got pregnant last year in september i found out my daughter was going to have down syndrome and i continued with my pregnancy we also found out my daughter was going to have a heart condition we were sure if she was gonna need surgery yet or anything my husband reenlisted into the military for the insurance for my daughter. I have suffered from depression for sometime now and i think it's worsened since he's reenlisted. I had my daughter in june 2017 and since the my depression has worsened i'm taking care of my child alone 24/7 because my husband works 5am to whenever the army decides to let him come home these last weeks he's been coming home by 7 and i just can't do it anymore raising my daughter on my own is tough my family is back in california and we're stationed in colorado i need his help i need the help as i was wondering how my husband can get out of the army.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?

I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Has your spouse applied for a hardship discharge? Or are you asking the process to do so?
