A military member is requited to "support" his/her dependents. In egregious situations, it can even be a crime under the UCMJ to "fail to support" dependents.
He likely gets "BAH/with" payments based on the zip code where you are physically located.
If he is receiving BAH/with, and he's not providing "adequate" support, that might rise to the additional crime of BAH fraud.
The rules on how much support is required are flexible, for example, is he paying your rent/mortgage, car loan, etc.? if so, the military would consider that as providing support.
As a "dependent" you are entitled to use the free military legal assistance program at your local military base.
You can also contact his supervisor. Keep in mind that the military does not get involved in the day to day management of a family and the family. When there is a pattern and history of failure to support they are more likely to get involved and possibly take action.
After 15 years in the AF I married then got divorced at 23 years in the AF.
It depends on state law. But the marital share is generally calculated based on the number of years married which overlap military service. So in your case it looks like 8 years.
She's not a 20/20/20 spouse for medical benefits.
DFAS does not deduct her payments because of less than 10 years.
Make sure your divorce lawyer knows about "military" divorces. She's automatically entitled to 50%, for example.
4 years in the Marines with an honorable discharged in 2013. Domestic violence misdemeanor in 2013. Seeking to go back into the military. Lautenberg amendment and weapons ban for 10 years.

i haven been recently discharged from the air force under fraud enlistment i was diagnosed with eczema and an allergy to wool. i have statements from my doctor saying that Ive never been diagnosed with either of these so how do i go about fighting...
The first thing would be to gather any and all medical records.
Then get a very detailed allergy examination on the wool.
Then you'd have a start on a petition to the Air Force Board for Correction of Records.
Security Clearance for commissioning background . My story is as follows: Falsely accused for sexual assault, a year later punished under UCMJ for providing alcohol to a person under the legal drinking age, never lost rank, punishment was suspend...
This sounds like CID was involved and you were Titled?
This a way to petition CID to change the records.
Yes, there's a potential issue on the security clearance, even for expunged records. Look at the SF 86 form and you will see a couple of places the prior allegations might be an issue.

I contacted an Arizona Congressman about my situation and submitted my "Privacy Release Form" to the Congressman Case Worker who sent my inquiry to the Pentagon on January 13, 2016. The Pentagon replied to the Case Worker confirming the inquiry wa...
The inquiry has to be forwarded to the commander at Fort Lee, who will in turn assign someone to look into the issue. A report is then made and sent back up the chain to the Representative. That can take weeks, depending on the nature of the issue. In the end, you'll likely get a form letter from the Representative with a copy of the Army "response." At that point the Reps. office may consider the matter closed and "resolved."See question
I have pissed hot on a drug test but I ETS in ten days I just wanted to know if the army will extend me or just let me get out. I haven't spoken to any attorneys yet.
Yes. If the reason is to prosecute you at court-martial. It will depend on many factors how they will proceed as well as the drug allegedly involved.
See a military defense counsel at TDS on base ASAP, and do not make any statements about this to your chain of commander, law enforcement, or investigators until you have talked to a lawyer.

1. You should not be publically disclosing these details.
2. Consult with the ADC office on base.
3. You may be facing an Article 15 and administrative separation for a pattern of misconduct. It's possible they will seek an other than honorable discharge. That depends on all of the facts, so nothing is certain. It MAY (not certain) be possible for an ADC to negotiate for a general discharge. But again this is fact dependent.
4. You should not make any statements to the commander, OSI, or law enforcement. If they ask, you can legally tell them you want a lawyer who will be appointed from the ADC office.
