Once you are divorced from a military member, you cannot live on base. Generally, you will have been moved off base before the time of the final divorce decree and the children go with whoever has custody of them. If the ex-spouse has custody of the children, he/she and the children will have to move off base. You cannot have that benefit. You can’t live in base housing. You can’t live in base subsidized housing. It’s only for members, so you absolutely have to move.
