I hope someone could help me
my husband is getting deployed for 6month, but still i think thats a long time. we are in europe now but i am sure, i dont want to stay here. my questions; if i left to go back home, will i get housing allowance? Of course I would give up the house and store all our stuff. I am not asking to get travel expenses or anything like that. i am just asking to get what we spend on our house. cause i think it doesnt make sense to keep the house which is going to be empty and unused. the only person who profits, is my landlord and i have extra expenses back home.
did you guys have any experiences like that? how did you handle?
Hi guys, thanks for your replies. i know, that others have to get on without their husband for much longer, but seriously, I want my people around me, or I would get depressed...!!!
following situation: my husband and I are here in germany, he is stationed here till 2011. now he gets deployed for 6month to honduras. i am definately going to my parents. can i keep the money, if i terminate the contract with my landlord? will i also get separation allowance if my hubby is away only for half a year? oh and we are airforce. i know that its different in the states, where you get the money, doesnt matter where you are and if you will spend the money on rent or not
hi, my husband came back with an answer today and i dont really trust it, i am sure there is something else we can do.
He said, that we will only get BAH and COLA, if we have a lease in germany and if i terminate the contract, we wont get it anymore. Only possiblity is to apply for "EARLY RETURN OF DEPENDANT" but then i cant come back here easily and we have to start all paperwork again.
is that right???
why is this all so complicated, can they do a job that makes sense?
they would rather pay my landlord instead of us, so i can use the money back home?
