Customer Question

I have orders to detach from my command, but I had an njp a few days ago and they are trying to separate me

Customer: What kind of information?
JA: Anything else I can tell the Military Lawyer before I connect you two?
Customer: I am pregnant and am not supposed to stay at my command past 20 weeks, im 17 today. I requested orders for change of command, and it was approved & I got my orders. But, I got in trouble for having alcohol in the barracks room and I got njp, 30 days restriction and bust down in rank. I then got caught with my phone, and was sent to njp again on Friday. The CO gave me 45 more days of restriction, emi, and half months pay deduction, along with requesting to adsep me.

I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Do you have a question regarding this?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
how long would the process take if I request to appeal my charges? Would I be stuck at this command longer? Will they wait until my restriction is up to separate me or will they start that process immediately? & is there any way that I can have my punishment lessened or be able to leave with the orders I have now? Basically, I want to leave as soon as possible. I don't care if I'm separated or not. Just what process will get me out of here the fastest? & is there anyway I can keep the orders I have now to leave in 6 days?
