Your ex couldn't handle your military service and opted to file for a divorce. Now, you are in a battle over your children. She wants to keep the children away from you, but you decided to fight for your children. Even though you are in the military, this doesn't mean that you must give up on your children. You have rights and options that you can exercise in a military divorce and child custody case.
Now that your ex has had your baby, you might wonder exactly what your rights are for being a father to the child.
