Arguments stem as to Russellette having controlling custody over Raina Cook, and allows Rodney access to the child when she deems fit or when he "sees things her way".
Rodney departs on Deployment with USS Porter (DDG-78)
Rodney returns from Deployment. Russellette is living in Norfolk and Rodney retains residence in Suffolk, VA.
Rodney gets orders to Yokosuka, Japan and has found a new companion. Russellette finds out through illegal access of Rodneys personal belongings and again begins to threaten he has no place in Raina Cook's life.
Russellette notifies Rodney she has a copy of marriage certificate and they are still married even though living apart since 2012. Rodney immediatley re-files for Divorce in Norfolk VA which is finalize on March 21, 2014.
Rodney enrolls in college at Thomas Edison State University.
Verbal abuse and not allowing Rodney to see child resumes.
Mediation is required for Divorce proceedings. Rodney asks due to his transfer to Japan and Russellette ending Maternity and Shore Duty for child Raina to be with him due to Russellette's Deployable status.
Rodney transfers to Yokosuka, Japan
After a number of vulgar/ explicit conversations by Russellette in front of minor child Raina via phone with Rodney she informs him she does not intend on adhering to parenting plan etc.
Out of pocket Rodney flies to Norfolk, VA to retrieve Raina after coordinating with Russellettes chain of command. Raina has not had required immunizations to leave the country as agreed by Russellette in the Court Order/ Parenting Agreement.
Russellette gets orders to Japan.
Russellette paints a picture shen will not be any problem and just wants to co-parent with Rodney. This later proves to be not true. Again, once Rodney is not open to Russellette's plan it becomes verbally and physically abusive.
Rodney attempts to manage co-parenting plan in attempts to make it clear there is no relationship but at the same time accomodate allowing full access to Raina
Russellette begins her aggressive and destructive behavior in front of Raina which would lead to Rodney asking/informing her to leave.
After asking Russellette to leave and her refusal to do so, Rodney loses his cool after an irate Russellette behave very inappropriately in front of 3 year old Raina. Explicit language, yelling etc.
Rodney is questioned on alleged charges of Domestic assault which is soon dismissed due to evidence of Russellette being not only the aggressor but the initiator of all incidents occurred in Japan and long past.
Family Advocacy gets involved and due to a scar on Russellette a Domestic incident was noted as of happening, no criminal charges found. Because incident happened it was protocol.
Visitation plan implemented by Fleet and Family Service Center, which was later manipulated by Ruseellette
Rodney tries again with a new relationship.. Russellette meets the woman who will be around her daughter etc. Only later to destroy another relationship because she didnt like her.
Rodney and Raina transfer back to Norfolk, VA as does Russellette. Coordination was made to be within the near or same timeframe of travel due to Raina being a minor and Rodney now being/ transitoning back to deployable status.
Russellette finds out Rodney is trying yet another relation ship and the aggressive and threatening behavior begins once again. Raina is now 6 years old and it is again being done in front of her.
Met Russellette Lambert onboard USS Porter (DDG-78)
Returned from Deployment . Had ups and downs as far as commitment and seriousness of relationship. (Married March 11, 2010 in Las Vegas Nevada).
Rodney initiated Divorce through Law Offices of Michael Ephrain online. 11/15/2011
Russellette and Rodney moved in together in Chesapeake, VA. (Many instances of Domestic issues in and out of the household) Russellette was the aggressor.
Rodney moves out of the residence along with an 8 year old son (Ronjai). Moved to Norfolk, VA.
Many instances of aggression by Russellette even in front of Rodneys minor son
Russellette calls Rodney to reconcile. She moves to Norfolk with Rodney and his son and things are pretty good for a few months and then revert back to the same domestic issues. Arguments that when Rodney get angry he leaves or does not want to talk about it leading to Russellette becoming destructive and/or verbally abusive.
Rodney makes provisions to purchase a house in expectance of a new child by Russellette.
Raina Michelle Cook is born
Russellette is home on Maternity Leave from the Navy, Rodney is preparing to Deploy again participating in military workups
Communication issues begin due to lack of Rodney being home, paying too much attention to the child, Russellette decides she wants to leave in the middle of the night with a 2 month old Raina.
Things are never the same (We mind each others company off and on for some time in between arguments etc, living in separate residences) But never live together again.
After first date, conversation was had about our kids and that and her daughters would be in the area she would accomodate me bringing my son up to Norfolk prior to us deploying in August 2009.
