my husband left me and our son in the middle of the night.

Posted by   + Show Post
We are stationed in Fort Bragg, NC. We came to Louisville so he could see his family before he deployed. Well the plan was to leave our son with his parents while we went back to Bragg and then when he deployed I was going to drive back here. He told me he wants a divorce and left in the middle of the night and left me with $100. I don't know if he is going to change his pay to go to a new account or what he is thinking. I still have some stuff in our storage unit in NC. I'm just really heartbroken. He didn't even say goodbye to his son. What kind of man does this? I spent 3 years of my life with him. I hate him :'(

Yes what she said.  My friends husband wanted a separation and kicked her out of their house.  SHe moved back home and had nothing to her name.  After a year she finally told his chain of command and they made him set up an allotment for her.  He is not in trouble but if she were to call his COC and tell them he cut off her allotment then yes he would.  He is stil in the navy.

Quoting MamaJess9:

My DH says you need to talk to his command, and your best bet may be to file for divorce yourself ASAP. Because if he changes his pay to go into an account you can't access, and you haven't done anything legal as far as separation, the Army can't make him give you money while you're married. DH says they will serve him papers and communicate through JAG even while he is deployed.

I realize it's hard right now, and you don't want to divorce, but you need to protect yourself and your child. If it turns out he is just going through a hard time and he changes his mind after he comes home, you can always get remarried.
