I have been married to my Wife for almost a year now living in Virginia and also have been the step-father to her son since he was 1 1/2 years old. his father is some what involved and lives in Florida he is active Air Force. my step son lives with us primarily. We are trying to get stationed in Japan in April 2018. The father also is deploying in December until June 2018. Im sure this can be easy or really hard. its hard to judge my wife's ex on what he will do. So what can I expect? should we get the ball rolling now? I don't want to go to Japan alone without my wife or step son.... any advice will help!!!

Hey there ! I read your post and it’s almost identical to my situation - down to the state of residence and PCS location and date!

I was wondering how your situation is going/ went?
My husband has orders to Okinawa , and i have a 3 year old son from a previous relationship - we’re hoping my ex does not contest the move. We’ve been married for almost 2 years and he’s been a father figure to my son since he was 13 months.
