After being punished by an infraction by my command, myself and several other have been told to live in barracks rooms recently flooded by a sewage spill that we also had to clean up. We weren't given any gloves or PPE for the cleanup and now we h...
If your command is not concerned, you have two most likely conclusions. One is that the room really is clean now, and you are overreacting. The other is that the command is being negligent. If it is the latter, you may seek out the inspector general at the installation and make a complaint. I would only do this after addressing it under the commander's open door policy. I expect that the command will probably do what it takes to make sure the room is clean and the sewage spill is unlikely to recur. Be advised, that seeing the commander on the open door policy and going to the inspector general may draw negative attention upon you. But sometimes you have to do what you have to do. Only you know if it is really as bad as that.See question

We are both military, different branches and married for just a year. We have not resided together as of yet. There is no community property or things of that sort. We were married in El Paso but both are residents of Houston Harris County Texas.
Jurisdictional rules vary enough that you need to contact an attorney in Texas. Go see your unit judge advocate. He or she can contact the American Bar Association LAMP Committee for a local referral.See question

You will be better off to immediately hire an attorney. Many of us on Avvo give free consults. If what you say is accurate, the solicitor will be more likely to deal with the case rather than push it to trial. Other than that none of us can accurately gauge the case until we see the police report, the video and any other evidence.See question

Mr. Cassara is correct. However, you might want to appeal to your chain of command, they can let you go "inactive national guard" (ING). If I recall correctly, the command has discretion to allow you to go ING for up to 12 months.See question
My husband is military, and we are currently living in Fort Riley, KS. We have two children together. I am moving back to our legal state of residence which is TN. This is also his legal state of residence. One of our children was born in Kans...
Ahhh, yes. Tricky question. You say your state of legal residence is Tennessee. It may or may not be. You can always argue that Tennessee is where you intend to reside but for military assignment. The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act allows you to maintain residency in a state though the military assigns you elsewhere. That might (maybe) mean that you could get divorced in Tennessee, BUT it does not stop another state from exercising jurisdiction over your divorce if you have lived in that state or have significant contacts in that state. From the sound of it, I believe Kansas has all the authority it needs to divorce you.
AND (this is very important) the SCRA does not trump the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act (UCCJEA). The UCCJEA says that the only (let me say it again, the ONLY) state that has jurisdiction over custody determinations of your children is the state where they have lived for the 180 days prior to the filing of a divorce (or other custody action).
I think you are better off to consult with a good attorney in Kansas and then with one in Tennessee. My suspicion is that Kansas is where the jurisdiction is for child custody, so why not do it all right there?

Maybe. This is a question of Florida Law (if you are in fact in Florida). Put another way, the answer to this question rests with the law of the state where the divorce case occurs. Only a licensed and experienced attorney in that state can tell you for certain. Expect the answer to be YES.
Good luck.See question
