Hello, I am a navy spouse and am currently going through a divorce. My soon to be ex-husband has given me a paper to sign stating that he doesn't owe me anything financially. How can I get someone to look this over?

Lawyer's Assistant: Are you overseas or stateside?

Overseas, Hawaii

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

No I have no idea who I would contact first

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Yes, I haven't been living with my husband for about 8 months due to his anger management issues and he has been collecting BAH

No I don't believe so

Thanks

Here is the Navy regulation that applies

There is a table in para 4 that shows what he has to pay you in the absence of a court order
