    Active duty military are exempt. This has nothing to do with California law or licences. This comes from the VA rules of professional responsibility. No military foreign attornies are regulated differently.

    Several points to keep in mind. Fees are negotiable to some extent. It will depend on the written agreement what is covered and what is not, flat versus hourly fee, making deposits against future fees, etc. This is an interesting phrase: "if the lawyer took more time that I thought" The amount of time and work that goes into a case is not always known at the beginning. I've certainly had cases where something happened during the representation that created additional work not contemplated...

    You can resubmit and ask for a personal appearance to present your case. In doing so you have to show new evidence. There are a number of things you'd need to do. One of the things DRB's like is community service. If you have that it needs to be emphasized. I do recommend professional help for a second go around. Contact me, or Bill Cassara; initial chat is free.

  4. 15-6 investigation punishment

    If they think you lied during a 15-6, the "offense" would be making a false official statement in violation of Article 107 UCMJ. The max punishment for 107 is 5 years confinement, a dishonorable discharge, total forfeitures of pay, and reduction to E-1. Perjury is if you were alleged to have lied under oath at a court-martial trial. So that's not applicable. You MUST at this point remain silent. Exercise your RIGHT to remain silent and have a lawyer. Do not talk to anyone, especially...

    Follow Mr. Contigugula's guidance. While the law is expected to go into effect the federal government is deciding whether to challenge the law because of federal laws regulating drugs. Not a time to be experimenting yet. And, if you happen to have a military affiliation or need a security clearance it will never be permitted to an individual regardless of state laws.

    As Mr. Poulson advises, first gather evidence. Your word alone will not be sufficient. You will need records of phone calls, emails, chats, and documents. Talk to the lawyer handling the appeal about this.

    You cannot sue in civil or military courts. If you have sought to address this through your chain of command you can make a formal EO complaint. Your battalion has an EO counselor who can assist. He/she has various mechanisms that might help, investigations into individual cases, EO unit-wide evaluations, etc. First address this directly with him. If that doesn't work try your platoon sergeant. If that doesn't work your 1SG.

  9. Military members paying child support---are BAH and BAS calculated in child support payments?

    The basic answer is yes, Virginia considers BAH and other non-taxable pay as income for child support purposes, as do most states. This is true especially where the noncustodial parent is living alone in the barracks but drawing BAH based on a child support obligation. In considering child support in this situation the court will often consider a remarriage with additional children and step-children involved. Bu this is all part of dealing with and deciding any overall child support decision.

    I have always understood that over 80 or 20 over the limit is reckless in VA. http://www.dmv.state.va.us/drivers/#points_6.asp http://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp504.exe?000+cod+46.2-862 In Virginia, a reckless driving conviction is a class I misdemeanor, so you could face jail time, suspension of driving privileges, and a fine of up to $2,500.00. Additionally, a conviction will result in six demerit points on your Virginia driver’s license. Some other states have reciprocity agreements...
