Can Navy family advocacy use a spouse’s/stepchilds juvenile court info to bring the military memeber before a review board?

I am a navy spouse whos child was taken into state custody for mental health reasons. The navy is now trying to bring my military member to a review board based on info contained in my case. This case was gaged by the juvenile judge, events did NOT happen on a military property, and my member was never present in court, under investigation and has recieved no verbal or written info stating they were charged with or guilty of anything.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of civil court and military court issues involved herein.  I am unsure who is doing what and why.  Some facts are missing.  Are you being represented by an attorney? If so, you need to locate one who is a military lawyer/extremely versed in military law and any civil law components.

Try www.attorneypages.com, try the California State Bar to check the lawyer under attorney search, and also try any military type organizations.
