I am currently trying to join the Air Force since they're allowing single parents to join. They claim that I will not have to "give up" custody of my 5 year old daughter if I join. I'm not sure if this is entirely true? My ex is threatening that if I do join, he will take away custody from me. He currently only has visitation rights but has been working, making good money. I have full physical and legal custody but an order that states I cannot move more than 150 miles away. He has been living over 200 miles away for the past 8 months. Has anyone lost custody due to joining? I know that Gov. Granholm did pass laws stating that a parents custody cant be decided on the basis of military duty.. any help?
