  • Can I reenlist with honorable discharge and RE-4?

    I was discharged for alcohol rehabilitation failure and was given an RE-4 with an honorable discharge. Is it possible to reenlist with this or get it changed so I can reenlist?

    Phillip’s Answer

    Most branches do not reenlist an re4. The chances for a waiver are about zero - especially in a drawdown like now.

    You can petition the BCNR-BCMR to upgrade - but that's a tough one.

    It's hard to give you any information about your issue – when you don't explain your issue in your posting. Referring back to something else posted on the site, doesn't help

  • I am an active duty in the military. Will that hurt me when it comes to me trying to get physical custody of my son

    My wife committed adultery. I have proof of her admitting it. she left the family home with my son without my consent a day or two after confronting her about the adultery. no violence or anything just calm conversations.

    Phillip’s Answer

    It can, but generally the court will look to what is in the best interest of the children. That is normally a re-occurring theme in family law matters.

  • Does NC law require one year of separation to get divorced even if you have been married only 8 months?

    My husband is an active duty Marine. I need the insurance and I am trying to keep it as long as possible so the year of separation is for my benefit.

    Phillip’s Answer

    This is really a family law question. I'm going to reassign it for that section, however the period of time – eight months – should not affect your separation time

    Phillip’s Answer

    Yes. Immediately. The navy may not detail one to you yet (they may give you 31b advice, ie keep your mouth shut and request to speak to an attorney if interrogated - but call a civilian defense attorney ASAP for advice as the investigation moves forward. It's imperative to protect yourself and your rights.

    Phillip’s Answer

    You need to speak to a criminal defense attorney ASAP. CID will try to wrap you in to this (if they believe it's assault on the child - and they always do).
