a friend was divorced from his wife several years ago. he was involuntarily honorably discharged from the service after 18 years. the divorce was final the following month. the papers say she is to receive her portion (Seifert formula = 50%) should he "retire from the service." he did not retire. he was involuntarily discharged. he has, of course, not been paying her anything. he receives a VA disability payment as his source of income. now, several years have passed and he has the opportunity to (possibly) have his discharge corrected to "medical" discharge or "medical" retirement due to injuries sustained while active duty. if he is granted the "medical retirement" will he be compelled to pay her half of the retirement pay and half of the "back pay?"

Mr., I attached my original question in the photo to

Hi Mr. Simmons,I attached my original question in the photo to hopefully remind you of my case. We spoke on the phone about my scenario and the possible charges. I'll find out tomorrow what the next step is and if there'll be any charges brought forward. My question is what should I do to prepare myself? The JAG told me to not sign anything until he's reviewed it. I'll also ask to see the evidence. Can I copy the evidence or take photos of it or can I take notes on what the evidence says to bring to the JAG? My case was submitted to a staff judge advocate for their recommendation and I'd like to know if I can receive a copy of that recommendation as evidence? Anything else you'd recommend? Thank you!
