This questions is best directed to the appropriate section of the Army Human Resource Command at Fort Knox, Kentucky. That place is enormous, but somewhere inside the building is the office that manages your career field. You need to reach out to them. In this case, I would reach out to them directly and ask your questions.See question
My husband is retired out of the U.S Army. While serving and before he went on deployment they advised him to have a POA while he was in Afghanistan. He chose his mother. This was all before I was in the picture. Now he's retired and we are marrie...
He should revoke this POA. He can do it by destroying all copies. He can do it better by destroying them and signing a rescission statement. He could also give you power of attorney. See the nearest national guard or reserve JAG legal assistance office or see a private attorney in your area.See question
This is the coolest Avvo question I have seen yet!
While on probation, your civil liberties can be restricted by the state - during the term of probation. In fact, some of your liberties almost always are - like a 4th Amendment waiver so your PO can come into your home without a warrant. But I have never ever heard of a condition of probation that did not allow a person to marry. I think you are going to be just fine. To be certain, look at your probation conditions. Does it say anything about a marriage restriction? If not, then you are in the clear. If it says something, then WOW, that is a first by me.See question

Actually, this is not a military law matter. It is a disability law matter. You need to speak to an attorney that is well versed in the state laws regarding persons with disabilities as well as the federal Americans with Disabilities Act. I am not such an attorney. My hunch is that you are not what is called a "protected class" regarding your dog and regarding a casino, BUT I might be incorrect. Hence, you need a specialist in disability laws. This really has nothing to do with your current or former military status. Sorry.See question

Military divorce / disabled veteran
Yes, no, and maybe. The divorce settlement agreement binds you and your soon-to-be ex spouse. Both of you have to comply with the terms. In so far as your soon-to-be ex spouse are required to make all best efforts to refinance property or remove your name in whatever fashion is required, you both have to take all those steps. But your divorce settlement agreement does not force a third-party, like a mortgage holder or a credit card company, to remove your name. If you and your soon-to-be ex spouse own a house with a mortgage of $400,000 and you're both on the mortgage, the mortgage holder is going to want to remove your name necessarily. Similarly, if there's a $20,000 credit card debt to SunTrust Visa, and this debt is in both your name and your spouses name, SunTrust isn't going to want to remove your name. No the old adage applies, if you don't ask, did you definitely will not get. Just keep in mind third parties are not bound to an agreement between you and your spouse. Only the two of you are. I hope this helps, good luck.See question

The punishment sounds like either a special or a general court martial. Both are reported through NCIC as criminal convictions. That and the discharge characterization will be with you forever. You can attempt to change the characterization of discharge through an appeal to the Air Force Board of Corrections. That will depend upon the quality of the written appeal, the steps you have taken to improve your life as well as the underlying circumstances of the conviction. You really should hire a military attorney to handle this for you.See question
OSI investigated me and some others and I did not make a statemernt. Now, my command wants me to submit a rebuttal to the OSI report. If not then they say they will seperate me.
If your command wants your "rebuttal" then OSI suspects you of wrongdoing. It is possible - although very unlikely - that anything you will write is going to change their minds. It is far more likely that they are seeking your confession or some unwitting admission of wrongdoing. Please also realize that if you say something in writing that they have evidence of to the contrary, they will charge you with the additional act of false statements under Article 108 of the UCMJ. Before submitting any rebuttal you need to go see Trial Defense or a civilian attorney. If you don't want to spend the time or money to do this, you may find yourself with a lot of idle time on your hands in confinement. Be smart.See question
I am a military spouse and got a Dui on base. I feel terrible for the choices that I made that night, my BAC level was a .18. I'm terrified, I know I have to face my consequences, but I would like to know what to expect?
You can expect the US Attorney to pick up the case as a DUI (and any other associated moving violations). You need to hire an experienced federal DUI attorney ASAP. Also, there is a possibility that the state could pick up the case. Either way, you need representation and fast. Be mindful of any administrative license suspension in your case; they often happen if you do not respond to an admin notice of license suspension within 8-10 business days, and this can really really make your case go sideways. Again, hire an attorney very soon. That is your best course right now.

Avvo is really not the best forum to ask this question. Frankly, your question is too complicated for this forum.
And this is not a military question either. This is a question of domestic law, but it's a question of comparative domestic law between two different states.
Obviously, you understand that you may get a better deal in one state or the other. You just don't know which state is the better state. Frankly, I don't know either.
And even if I were an expert in Hawaii or in Maryland domestic laws, which I'm not, it would still depend on what all of your goals are.
Really the best thing for you to do is to have a face-to-face consult with the domestic law attorney in Hawaii. You should discuss all of your goals with that attorney. Before you even get to the merits of your case, you do need discuss jurisdiction. I'm not positive that Hawaii would be the best date for you to get divorced in.
One thing in particular that you must not lose sight of is your husbands military pension. Just because you have jurisdiction in one state or the other, does not mean that you have jurisdiction over his pension in that state. For example Hawaii may be the state for jurisdiction over the divorce and over child custody, but if you're only in Hawaii because of his military assignment,Hawaii will not have jurisdiction over his military pension. And this is the important part - if you do not reserve division of his pension in Hawaii divorce, meaning reserve it for another state to later deal with it, then no state will have jurisdiction over his pension. In other words you will of lost that right forever.
So I say all this to say, be very careful. Do a face-to-face consult with the Hawaii attorney as soon as you can and raise all these issues. In fact print off this response and take it with you. Expect to pay some money. Expect to pay a quality attorney by the hour, at least $200 or $300 per hour. Do not go to an attorney who will do this for $500 or $1,000 flat fee. Frankly, it's just too complicated, and the stakes are too high.
After speaking with an attorney in Hawaii and keeping good notes, you're going to want to get on the phone and have a good quality consult with Maryland attorney. Avvo Will give you a good listing of attorneys in both areas. The last thing I'll tell you was when you were a vettimg attorneys in both states specifically ask them about their familiarity with military divorce, division of military pensions, the UCCJEA and jurisdiction over children and custody and military and medical benefits and divorce generally.
Listen, Hawaii is a long way from home especially with children in tow. You have a lot of work ahead of you. I hope this note helps you, and best of luck to you.See question
