I’ve been in the guard for 8 months now and have been back in the civilian world for about 2. I just took a job that pays ok but not enough to pay my monthly bills. Im trying to get a second full time job or at least a a part time job to make the ...
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?
Anyway, I hope this helps a littleSee question
My wife was caught cheating on me. I am a disabled veteran. My child is autistic. When I told everyone including the spouse of the other man she retaliated with 8 cops at my door screaming neglect. She has worked during the 8 years of our marriage...
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
I am in the middle of an AR 15-6 investigation for apparently turning in false sick call quarters to my boss. I went to a civilian hospital and not a military hospital. Can they still have access to those records? Also, the IO says that he called ...
You have some problems. Your location is pretty specific, and your fact pattern is also unique and specific. You should stop discussing these things on an open forum. You need to speak directly to an attorney not in an open forum. Stop doing this.
Assume they can get all these records. If an article 15 is recommended you can speak directly to a military defense lawyer. I recommend you consult with a private attorney soon.See question
I would like to know if my Command can punish me for laughing at my Brigade Commander for telling me that I am getting a letter of reprimand. A FLIPL was conducted and I was found liable for a few items that were not mine.
Yes. I have done this myself to my own detriment. It feels right. Sometimes the guy in charge is an idiot. Still, laughing at him to his face brings nothing good.See question
My Platoon Sg telling me that I am hard slotted to a Combatives school where you get punched, dropped and hurt, it is done as a part of class. I've known many people who came from there went straight on physical profile. I start Warrior Leader C...
Yes, "man up" and go. Let me just put it into perspective for you. 47 short years ago, Uncle Sam could pluck you off of the street, run you through basic and ship you to VIETNAM. Once in Vietnam, they could order you to go into the jungle and kill people.
Now go and Be All You Can Be.
P.S. What I would give to go to a combatives course with Drew Early!See question
Do I need a lawyer to sue the military for the water contamination at camp lejuene while I served. And contracted non Hodgkin's lymphoma
Yup, you need a really really good lawyer. You need a lawyer soooo gooood that he can overcome almost 60 years of US Supreme Court precedence that says you cannot sue the military in these type cases (United States v. Feres, the genesis of the so-called "Feres Doctrine" which says in so many words, "You cannot sue the military").
Why? Well, for one reason because you can go to the VA and get relief. For another, because the courts don't want to be bogged down with people suing the military. Yes, a really really good lawyer. Don't pay hourly, go with a contingent contract.See question
I need a VA (veteratian Admin.) lawyer for my military benifits
Cassara is correct. We cannot recommend. So by way of example, if I recommended Mr. Drew Early in Atlanta (DeKalb County in fact) that would be wrong. So I cannot do that.See question

You should always always always tell the whole truth. If it is not meant to be, then it is not meant to be. You will, however, forever have your integrity. That is what matters most.See question

There are a lot of variables here. Your process starts with sitting down face-to-face with an attorney and talking this thing out. You cannot hope to get strong answers to such a vague, open-ended fact pattern. Nothing takes the place of a face-to-face meeting with an attorney. Do this right away.See question
