for the past 10yrs and 5 months we have lived in san diego California. He is in the Navy (E7) we have been together sine 10/20/2007, married since 7/8/2016, just had our first baby 01/12/2018. I am currently no longer in San Diego due to the lack of stability, adultery, mental, emotional abuse. I had to remove myself and my daughter and dog to ensure we were safe and healthy. I currently live in Florida with my mom. My husband has been having an affair since 05/2017 with a 21 now 22 year old with 2 kids. She is currently also still married. and has a horrible record etc. I am first and for most needing to protect my daughter and her up bring. I want to ensure to file for divorce, 100% custody, with supervised visitaions where he has to blow in to breath lesser to ensure he is not drunk. i want a restraining order placed on here where she will have -100% contact with my daughter and myself. she is not to be associated with my daughter and our life. and then a cease and desist order placed on both of them were they can not speak post on social media etc anything about my daughter, myself and this situation. i want that for both of them. She posts online a lot of slander about her husband and i am not interested in having items posted on social media where my daughter will find one day. Also i do not post my daughter on social media and they are to not as well. The girl he is having the affair with is to have nothing no photos, be around for phone calls etc. be in the state when he is visiting. etc.

Here is a little of what is happening so i am not sure what path is the first one to take.
Military Lawyer: DanLegal, Lawyer replied 1 month ago

Okay - first step would be to file for divorce in Florida. I would contact a family law attorney to help you file for divorce. Because of what you have told me about you will be able to file for %100 custody. First step in your road to recovery is filing for divorce and you can do that in Florida and serve your husband with papers via certified mail.

i have only been in florida for 1 week today. Still file in Florida? can the Jag not help me file?
Military Lawyer: DanLegal, Lawyer replied 1 month ago

Yes, it is legal to file for Divorce anywhere that you and your child are living. Or the county in which you were married. I do not believe a JAG attorney can help with divorce, but I am not sure.
