I am a Captain in the Army. I was charged with a DUI in municipal

I am a Captain in the Army. I was charged with a DUI in municipal court. I received a GOMOR from a 2-star and I submitted matters to petition for it to be filed locally. I am still waiting to hear the general's decision about where he will file the GOMOR. Obviously, I am flagged from favorable action and have had my secret clearance suspended. I am 4 and a half years into a five year service obligation. If the GOMOR is filed in my OMPF, is it possible to REFRAD before a Show Cause Board? I am within my REFRAD window, I just need to wait for the flag to be lifted. Once the general determines where to file the GOMOR does the flag get lifted? Or does the flag remain until HRC and the GOSCA have a chance to look at my file and determine whether to proceed with a Show Cause Board? Basically, my goal is to get out of the Army with an Honorable Discharge. What is the likeliness of me being able to voluntarily get out?

I am an ex wife of a 20 year retiredAir Force member. We were

I am an ex wife of a 20 year retiredAir Force member. We were married for 10+ years, with 3 children. Our uncontested divorce decree was finalized 8 years ago. In our decree, it states that I am entitled to a percentage (leaving that unstated) of his retirement pension. It includes our date of marriage. It states he shall not merge his retired pay/pension with any other, waive any portion, take disability, purse any action that would decrease the amount, reduce it, or defeat the pension/retirement or my portion or right to receive my share of it. It says he shall indemnify me by making payments directly to me for any breach of this provision. It also says, I am the irrevocable beneficiary of the survivor's benefit plan through member's military retirement as a former spouse of his and they he shall execute paperwork as is required to make or extend the election for spouse as said beneficiary, and shall do nothing to reduce or eliminate that benefit. It states he shall elect former spouse only option and should select the base amount as the full amount of monthly retired pay. We have been divorced for eight years and I have been led. To believe that all of this was taken care of, however, my ex retired October of last year and still I have recieved no check. I have obtained a lawyer but she wants me to fill out the DD FORM for deemed election (which I didn't realize was an option before now, my ex and I try to get along for our children so I believed him when he said it was taken care of) and I'm reading that unless the forms are filled out within a year of the divorce they are denied. Also, I'm almost positive he took the $30,000 bonus offered at his 15 year mark for a 1% reduction in his retirement. I'm not getting a lot of cooperation from my lawyer, who I already paid a pretty hefty retainer to, and I wouldn't concern myself with the retainer except I've never gone for an increase in child support, and my ex refuses to help with anything extra, and my son graduates this year, and my ex has maid it clear he won't be helping out with college for any of them and child support stops when they graduate or turn 18, so I figured this would help with that, because florida is not a state that requires divorced parents to both contribute to supporting their college students. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
