You don't mention what type of case you are asking about. If it is a claim for service-connected compensation, I or another attorney can review your case and no attorney can charge you for that.

I recently enlisted in the National Guard, I haven't been to basic training yet. I've thought about this a lot and I just realized It's truly wrong for me, I jumped into it while simply excited (I'm 17). Is there a way out without legal repercussions?
Before I left I told my sergeant at the time that I was leaving and he told me to go take care of my family. I have been gone for almost 14 years and I wish to go back to clear my name. I need an advice from jag as to what I should do or where the best place would be to go to do this.
There are civilian lawyers who can help with this.

You and your wife should go to the Base Legal Assistance Office. You are both entitled to free legal assistance. They will have some of the answers there. If they don't, they will have a referral list of local lawyers familiar with military divorces and PCS.
“ The militia consists of all able-bodied citizens of this state and all other able-bodied persons who have declared their intention to become citizens.” Does this mean that there is no defined age range? I’m 15 years old, and I’m curious if I’m legally part of this militia.
My husband wants to enlist in the military, but he doesn’t want to lose custody of his 2yr old daughter. Right now he and his ex haven’t settled any sort of custody agreement in court, it’s all been verbal agreements. We currently are her primary household, and have been for over a year now....

The papers have already been sent to D.C. for processing so they can get their citizenship. This started because of the enlistment into the military and the constant talk with a lawyer. But if the person is discharged, can they still get their parents their papers?
Possibly, based on one's military discharge status and other factors. You indicated the parents do have a licensed immigration counsel which should be the best legal route as that professional should be intimately familiar with the case fine, correspondence, case filing and evidentiary case support.
If you are an adult, it is difficult to pursue a medical malpractice claim against the VA that is over two years old. There are some very, very limited exceptions. But for the most part, you cannot win the case based on time issues.
