Local/short-term: My cousins happen to live a couple hours away
Long-term: My mom and/or my husband's parents
At our last base, I had the wing secretary be my short-term person. If you are having problems, find a civilian who wouldn't mind doing it for a few days until your long-term provider could get there.
Green*Flamingo:DH and I are both AD Army. Our family care plan...eh... I'm currently waiting on orders from HRC for my resignation. We don't have a family care plan, so I am having to step out of the Army for right now.
I WISH! the navy is so strict they will not let me do this. we have so many rules in this instruction i can not by pass a single one.
my hubby and i are both AD navy. he got sent up to VA for two years and i am not able to go with him. reason 1 i cant transfer for 2 years of which i have only done one year. reason 2 my XH my DDs father put in our divorce that i can not leave the state of FL or he will take custody of my DD. over my dead body! so our family care plan is kinda a mess. my DD goes to her granny short term and long term to her dad. my DS goes to my DDs granny short term and long term to his grandma in Arkansas. its a crazy mess! it was just something i threw together until i can get out in 2012!
Oh that sucks. Luckily for us, my ADSO was complete a while back, I was just staying in until we had a baby. Since I didn't have any obligation time remaining due to PCS or schooling, no one could deny my resignation. My command is also supportive since they know I lost both my parents during my deployment and I have no other family. There is no family care plan because I have no one to ask to step in.
I hope you are able to work out the details of the divorce and custody issue. Given that you are military, I am surprised they put in there about you leaving the state of florida. Obviously you would have to leave at some point...
We are both AD Navy.
Short term: A Navy friend's non-Navy wife. God forbid something were to happen, she already has an ID card and access to the CDC and military hospitals, commissary, NEX, etc.
Long term: My parents.
This thing was a PITA to come up with but thankfully I'm on shore until I get out so it really is worse case.
