they will not do anything for custody issues-

this is from the Army site- but it applies to all 5 branches:

Examples of Requests that are Normally not Approved

  • Soldier's desire is to be in a new area.

  • Divorce or separation that is the result of family separation due to military requirements.

  • Legal actions and court appearances for matters relating to divorce and/or child custody issues.

um....are you guys in the EFMP? 

i dont know about humanitarian orders but i know about EFMP...and the only thing that it does really is make sure that you are at a station where you can get access to all the medical care that you need....thats about it....

Go to the military Aid Society. I used Air Force Aid. Humanitarian would be orders to place the military member at a base closer to home. I don't know about humanitarian TDY...

If you're EFMP when you move overseas they make sure there is medical care for you. You wouldn't get sent home for it unless its a new condition.

You can, however, use space A travel to get home for very cheap.

DH got humanitarian orders (temporary) but only because his dad is terminally ill and needed help taking care of himself. And since it was temporary we had to pay for everything out of pocket.

Custody issues would not qualify you for either program. :-(

If you didn't find out you or your child had any issues (for lack of a better word) before you moved overseas but your post has the care you need, then you wouldn't be able to go back home and even then if the post you lived on didn't have the care you needed the service member likely would not go back, it would be just you and the kids.
