Legal Question in Military Law in Virginia

I am in the Army, and I have been paying my wife $600/mo. for the past two years. I have had her served with divorce papers more than once, however she wont sign them. I have already paid $600 for the divorce and cant afford any more fees. Every time she is served with papers, she calls and asks me if I want to keep it a contract marrage. All she wants is the money, she cant hold a job and is living on her own. Is there any way that I can stop paying her without getting introuble? (we have a seperation agreement that says I must pay her $600 each month.) I really need help, my credit score has gone down the drain becuase of her and I cant afford my bills. Thank you for your time, I assure you any info will be helpfil.

You might want to have the JAG officer assigned to your unit to review your separation agreement to determine what you might now do about this $600 alimony payment(if anything---assuming that's what it is).

Furthermore, one doesn't need the cooperation of one's spouse in signing divorce papers in order to get a divorce in the Commonwealth or any place else in the United States.
