    Is he in the Army? Regardless of service he is required to provide you support per various military regulations. In the Army, AR 608-99 is your guideline for the type of support that you are required to get in the event of a separation. All you need to do is call his chain of command and let them know that you know you are required to receive support and that he is not supporting you.

    You would be well advised to obtain an attorney if your intent is to come back home to the States. Under these facts you could be considered a deserter (Article 85, UCMJ).

Those reasons may mitigate the maximum sentence that could be levied against you. www.jordanucmjlaw.com
