  • Making my 2nd attempt clear

    During my tour of duty at Fort Hood in 2002 I refuse to go on another training mission until my chain of command gave me my promotion orders for Sergeant First Class, the orders were to be given to me before I left my temporary duties as a army re...

    Phillip’s Answer

    I understand what you're saying, but none of it makes any sense. If you refused to train as a staff sergeant, I would have suspected they would have tried to give you the article 15 you mentioned. You're refusing and then being chained and transported makes no sense whatsoever. Are you still in the army? If so, you should see a trial defense service attorney immediately. If you're not in the army, you may want to actually consult with a lawyer who can review whatever paperwork you may have.

  • Who can file UCMJ 134 ? And does it apply to a single solider who is messing around with a civilians wife?

    Single Solider got civilians wife pregnant while "now civilian" was active duty . Filed an IG complaint but is now released from the military. Can the former solider still file for military charges against the single solider for messing with his w...

    Phillip’s Answer

    Your question is unclear - who's out of the military - the one who got the woman pregnant or the husband? If the one who got the woman pregnant is the soldier and is out of the military - there's no jurisdiction for UCMJ action. As far as who "files" - it's the command that charges - it doesn't matter if the husband is a former soldier or not...he can only report misconduct...the action is up to the command.

    My girlfriend is pregnant with my child. She is going through a divorce all the paper work is done, but the husband refuses to sign the paper work. I am in the military and she is too. Is there anyway adultery can come into play at anytime

    Phillip’s Answer

    You need to call a lawyer now - TDS/DSO or civilian and so should she. This will come unraveled quicker that you'll see it coming and you need to be prepared, i.e. be proactive not reactive.

  • How can my son Get out of basic training?

    He is in week 2. Recruiter advised him not to disclose he had surgery years ago. Now he's having pain.

    Phillip’s Answer

    Kevin is right. No easy answer. If he lied about an injury or medical condition and it's discovered, anticipate an entry level or administrative separation for Fraudulent Enlistment.

  • Can you be discharged from navy for 1st DUI in the state of Virginia?

    I was discharged after only my first dui. I have been denied unemployment as well as VA benefits.

    Phillip’s Answer

    Yes - I mean they did discharge you - so they can and did. Whether they did it properly, whether you can fight for your VA benefits - those are different questions the answers to which can be best obtained by calling an attorney that practices military law. Many of us here do free consultations.

    Phillip’s Answer

    If you're a registered dependent, i.e. in deers - you should contact the base/station legal assistance office and se if they can assist you. Otherwise, I'd contact an immigration law attorney. You can find them using the Find a Lawyer tab on AVVO. This is an immigration law question - for sure.
