My wife is with another man right now and she does not want to get a divorce due to the benifits she has as an Army spouse. We have two kids in the marriage and I have no proplem paying child support. But she said I can not see the kids any more and if step a foot in Germany she will have me arrested. I am tired of fighting, I want a divorce. What do I do?

Is your wife a soldier as well? If not, you should have no issues with a Texas Divorce.
Divorce / Separation Lawyer
You have a tough situation to work through, if she plans to stay in Germany. If she is just stationed there, I assume she will want to return to the US one day, with the kids.
If you want a divorce and don't really care about child custody issues, you can file for divorce in Texas, but then you have to have her served. Serving a person on active duty, particularly on overseas deployment can be frustrating. As a soldier yourself, you can probably work through that easier than civilian spouses.
