I have a few questions and concerns. I went through a MEB

Hi, I have a few questions and concerns. I went through a MEB board process & it has been finalized & completed. I have my desperation orders. My ETS date is Sept 26, 2016. However, on my final out date, my chain of command flagged me & pulled my terminal leave to pend me for UCMJ for an incident that took place on July 28th, 2016. I'm trying to seek legal help to see what's going to be taking place. I have went to JAGS & they said they don't have any paperwork on me. I have already cleared with the PMO , but there is a pending charge... PMO said it is not being court martial. I'm just sitting around, haven't heard anything on what they're going to do with me. What can possibly happen? How will this effect my separation & my disability?

Apparently my son who is in the air force bought some

Apparently my son who is in the air force bought some marijuana legally in Washington state and brought it on base to try. (first time user), two of his friends found out he had it and bought some from him. Well, the friends pissed hot, and ratted him out. My son was truthful and admitted it and at first that thought he was el choppo, but I think they see now he's a kid who made a stupid mistake. No evidence, no pot, no nothing, just his admission. He's being offered 5 months confinement and a bad conduct discharge. Is there anything that can be done to lessen the punishment?

Me and my husband are currently separated since late October

Me and my husband are currently separated since late October of 2014. I've gone through abused with him so have to call the police and since that day it happened we never live in a same house again. We have a 5 year old son together. We try to be civil since the court order was lifted and no contact order was over. I thought were fine, accepted everything that has happen and start moving on.. He was dating already and since I thought were fine after a year I decided to date as well.. He was dating his soldier then and i never said anything because I just want him to be happy and were totally over anyways. We both didn't file divorce yet then just for the reason in my part as lack of financial money to go through it.. Then now, me and boyfriend are getting serious. We've moved in together. He knows everything about us just as much as I know about his relationship. We told each other that it's about time to just really finally file our divorce. Now the case is, after he have file divorce, most stuff that was written in there was very unfair and asking to just for him to support $300 after divorce is over from sending $1000 monthly. My boyfriend is in the service as well. Since I tried to contest with it, he's just now sending 270 and told me if talk to his commander about it he'll get my boyfriend in trouble.. I'm sorry for the very long story. I just want to put as much information I could because I know my situation is very complicated. I just wanna know what I should do since he's blackmailing us.. Thank you in advance. Hope I can hear from You soon and Hope someone could help me out.
