My husband and I are separated with not knowing when to file divorce (he should file because he has grounds). We have 2 kids who are with me. we were ok and civilized until something came up and we had a big argument by texting. He is in the states and I’m in a US territory. Because of the argument, he threatened me and said he will file an order against me to have full custody of the kids. Reason if because he pays the kids tuition and a few hundreds more for their needs. So he believes that he can support them financially with tuition receipts as proof. I have a job and i take care of the kids all the time if im not at work. I get involve with them and their school and do my best to spend time with them. But because he is threatening me, im scared he will win. Pls help!
Active Duty Military Members can have sole custody if that’s what the Court thinks is in the best interest of child. Don’t know why you can’t file. If the children are in Guam, I am going to assume under UCCJEA that Guam will have jurisdiction over the children. If you are Active Duty military you should seek legal assistance from the JAG who can refer you to an attorney or refer you to the ABA Military Pro Bono project that assists in these matters....
