Short PCS - do I have to?

Husband is waiting to hear if he will be assigned to Florida for a six month training that is considered a PCS, but we currently live in Oregon and I would rather not move (and keep my job!) if possible. Do they require spouses to move for every PCS? Once he gets a more long-term PCS after training I would be happy to move!

We figured it wasn't required but it's good to know how they treat BAH, separation pay, and moving expense compensation if you don't move together. Thanks for the info!

You never have to move if you don't want to but if it is accompanied orders he will get BAH w/dependents based on where he is stationed and he might not be allowed to stay in barracks.  Family separation would not be paid as this is a voluntary separation as well.   If he does get orders after training then they would only pay for your things to be moved from Florida to where he is stationed not Oregon.
