I'm a retired army veteran currently paying my exspouse 23% of my disposable retirement pay under the soldiers and sailors act. Divorced 8/96, retired 3/01.

I am a 23 year old man, AD Air Force. I may be expecting

Hello. I am a 23 year old man, AD Air Force. I may be expecting a child with a woman who is also AD Air Force. Her pay grade is E-4. She has dependents who do not reside with her, whom she pays child support on and currently receives the appropriate BAH and BAS. I am an E-3 with no dependents currently living in the dorms, receiving single BAS due to lack of access to the DFAC, but appropriately, not receiving BAH.When the child is born, she wishes for us to live together, buy a home together, and raise the child together. Financially, this would only be feasible for me if I were to receive the allotment for BAH w/ dependents and BAS w/ dependents. The complication arises here; She does not wish to get married at this time, for personal reasons, but will want to eventually. This would be at an unspecified time, years in the future. I respect her wishes patiently, however this would put me under difficult financial circumstances if no modification to my pay were made.We are both currently looking for a way for me to declare the new child as my dependent, and for me to receive dependent BAH and BAS. What are our options?

Should I start to seek the advice of a lawyer now or wait

should I start to seek the advice of a lawyer now or wait until he gets out and see what type of retirement he is going to claim? I know he will be out in the next 12 months. I am worried about what he is up to because this was a very messy divorce. He didn't even want to pay alimony or child support and we stayed in court for years, so I know he is going to fight this with everything he has, and I think he thinks (and he might be right) by going out on VA and Miltary disabilility he can finally avoid paying me. What should I do in the meantime to prepare if anything at this point?

My daughter just got divorced from a retired military man.

My daughter just got divorced from a retired military man. They both have custodial rights for their joint minor children. He has demanded that she return the children's military medical ID cards to him. Can she be entitled to keep the military medical ID cards for their children? The health of the children and the ability of both parents to get immediate medical care for their children should be a priority.Thank you.John
