I need to know if you have any experts in Military law that could tell me what my rights are as the spouse of an Air Force Veteran. I am currently separated from my husband of 30 years (22 of those years he spent on active duty).What are my financial rights as far as his military retirement goes. He is still living in Georgia, (where he retired) I am in Indiana, our home state, where we met & married.Also, do the laws in Georgia differ from those in Indiana regarding separation or possibly divorce? We have one 17-yr-old daughter, who is in GA with him. The house they are living in is in both our names.Help, please.Linda Grabos

I was pulled over, took a breathalyzer and was never charged

I was pulled over, took a breathalyzer and was never charged with a DUI while stationed in Georgia. As a result I was given a general discharge from the ARMY. Fast forward 20 yrs while trying to renew my CO drivers licence I was told that my driving privilege is under restraint from the state of GA preventing me from renewing in CO. I never had a GA drivers license and I have renewed twice in CO since my discharge, till now. How do I go about proving to the state of GA that I was not charged with a DUI and get this restriction removed so I can renew my CO license?
