Greetings. First, let me thank you for your current military service to our country. Next, I don’t think it will be extremely hard for you to obtain custody of your daughter, but your wife will continue to have visitation. You should immediately obtain a domestic violence restraining order, including your 5 year old child.
Your major problem is deployment. What is the possibility of being assigned to a job state-side for the remainder of your enlistment?
