please help if u can...I'm 36 and married w 4 dependents a yr ago i signed over residential custody of my kids to my x, their father due to economic downfall of small business i owned went under. he never paid child support but has as of the last 2 yrs taken care of the kids now that he remarried and has a good job. i passed the asvab with score of 90 and physical with flying colors. usarec denied my dependency waiver due to the fact that my x never paid child support and they feel he will not take proper care of the kids while i am in training. we backed everything up with certified docs from the court stating the transfer of residential custody and since he owes me $80,000 in back child support i don't owe him. i have not had any income for 18 months so being in the army would be a huge help to our situation...as of may 1st i will be to old to join (a week away). am contacting my representative on mon for any assistance they could provide. any ideas would be appreciated...don't understand why i'm penalized for my x's shortcomings and would never leave my kids in a bad situation.
