I just got hit with an early return of dependents....returning to the states(now in Michigan, prior GA resident, spouse's home of record is PA)....have two minor children with me. We could not agree on a separation agreement, and now it seems I have to establish residency to file. WHat are the entitlements of the military member, as I understand, from reading some of the state laws, he also would have to live here for the residency period to file(he has 2 more years overseas). I wanted to get it over with, but now it seems I may have to wait. I am also not planning to stay in Michigan. Advice welcome, especially dealing with Michigan law.

Where are you planning to make your final home?? Moving around too much will be seen as being unstable by a court and your spouse can use that against you. Get yourself firmly settled, get the kids in school, get a yourself a job or enrolled in school (or both), to show that you are getting your life together, and can provide a safe and stable home for your kids. Your spouse has to provide you with support (his BAH is given him specifically for that), you may need a court order for CS and SS, this is simple and residency doesn't matter for that.
