I have a Court Order from Oklahoma for immediate genetic testing of the father of my child. The Armed Forces Medical Examiner System has a DNA test on file that was apart of a Criminal Investigation involving myself, the father and the child included on the court order. I have received the redacted... Read more »

Probably not. The order requires testing, not release of test results.
Am I required to still pay the alimony as she has remarried?
answered on Apr 2, 2019
This depends on the terms of your divorce decree. Usually, alimony stops upon her remarriage. However, the division of your military pension is not alimony. It is part of your property division. Those terms would not change upon her remarriage. you should have an attorney review your decree and... Read more »

It does not. The military is a "command driven system," in that the commander (with the advice of his legal advisor/Judge Advocate) can use the other tools in his tool box for punishment and correction (non-judicial punishment, counseling, letter of reprimand, administrative separation, etc.).
This girl had her and a few of her friends call animal control and make false accusations against me because I no longer wanted to be her friends and she is now trying to make my animals and my life hell. What can I do?

You have to fight the citations in court, if you get court dates.

As long as the MPO has expired, and you have not received a new one, then there is no MPO in place. However, it wouldn't be wise to make contact with the protected person, as that often leads to a new report of harassment/stalking/abuse and another MPO.
After filing the divorce both parties submitted documents. We had a scheduled mediation I was unable to attend because I got deployed for 10months, now I’m back and don’t know who I contact or if I have to start all over from the beginning?

You should contact the court/court clerk where the case was originally filed to check the status of things and whether you will need to refile. You could also contact your spouse to assess as well.
I realize timing is everything. I know I retired during a bad time for the Federal govt & the veterans retirement system, that is, between 2008 & 2015, when there was not a Streamlined, one-stop process for honorable & medically retired personnel.
(BTW, I got my VA medical and... Read more »

Yikes! Due to the sums involved, it is highly recommended that you contact an attorney that specializes in military law and/or military disability claims. Since the VA and DoD are not known for their transparency or efficiency, I suspect that something can be done legally.

Colorado does allow marriage for minors (under 18) if either: (1) custodial parent(s) of the minor formally consent or (2) via judicial approval if the minor does not have any legal parent. Be aware that the consent must be signed and part of the marriage filing.
I was notified of separation from active duty in the US Army as result of the 2014 Officer Separation Board (OSB) for Majors. The reason listed on my DD-214 states AR 600-8-24, Chapter 5. However, there is nothing in that chapter whatsoever that details separation for officers in good standing.... Read more »

You question is reasonable and very clear (a rarity). Unfortunately, I am not aware of any lawyers at Justia that have extensive knowledge of military law (98% of all law schools don't offer classes on military law). You can try Avvo (again, lawyers familiar with military law a few and far... Read more »

He needs to stop -- NOW.
There are quite a number of cases going on to do with on-line activity such as this. Whether he ultimately gets in trouble or not, it's not healthy for your relationship and his commanders may not look at him as a good Soldier/ so it might affect his career.
