    I am very sorry to hear of this tragic loss. Unfortunately, I don't think any such law suit would be possible due to the long time that has passed since then. And even if that were not the case, you could only sue the individual Marines (which would be fruitless) as opposed to the Marine Corps.

    A couple of things: First, don't post any more details about this on an open forum. Second, do not make any more statements to CID. If they ask to speak to you, tell them you will not make any statements and you want a lawyer. Finally, go to TDS and speak to a military defense counsel. They are allowed to extend you past your ETS if they are looking to court-martial you, and based on what you are saying, I think that is likely. You should also consider retaining civilian counsel who is...

    The short answer is yes, one can be charged with DUI even though they are not arrested and did not have their rights read to them. The longer answer is that if your husband is facing a court-martial he needs to seek base legal counsel and consider retaining a civilian attorney.

    It depends on the language in your divorce decree. Generally speaking if it isn't in the decree, you are not entitled to it.

    Yes. Your first amendment rights in the military are limited. Just like you can't tell you first sergeant to go to hell, you can't make disparaging comments about the President.

    Understand two things: One, if you are not comfortable with your lawyer, you should tell him so and you should consult with another lawyer. Two, your lawyer is getting paid a portion of your recovery. There would be no incentive for him to "work for the other side" and get you (and him) less money.

    I don't think any lawyer can answer your question based on this amount of info. Contact a local immigration attorney and let them answer all your questions.

    I agree with the previous response, and only add that when I worked for the Bar Association they had a robust program to assist people in situations like this. You should contact the state bar.

    I have dealt with several of these cases. You need to contact your unit ASAP, and see if they can arrange an alternate duty location for you. If not, regardless of the logistical problems you need to report. The long term negative implication of an Other Than Honorable Discharge (which is what you will get if you don't report) are significant and far outweigh any logistical issues. Make sure all your paperwork is in order. You might want to contact a military law attorney prior to...
