I was married just shy of 10 years to my husband who was in the military. The lawyer stated that I would get a percentage of his military retirement and it is in the divorce paperwork as well. Would I need to get a military lawyer in order to collect this?

So, I was told no I am not allowed to touch military pay-

so, I was told no I am not allowed to touch military pay- but he walked out on me, I'm disabled-I, not his kids, have two mentally challenged / disabled sons. I may lose my home. He is still on mortgage and deed, and has not moved all his stuff. I know I can get alimony but not sure how much, but what about his SS income and VA disability? Not mine either? How do they figure out the alimony?

I'm in the army. And I have a crazy ex fiancee and she says I owe her $5,000 but she never gave me any money. And I bought her a wedding ring and engagement ring 2 years ago which are worth $5,000 and I want to tell her just to keep the rings but she doesn't want To. And now she's telling me she will go to chain of command and tell them I owe her $5,000. What can I do? We aren't married we broke up and can they even take her seriously?

I have a few questions regarding divorce and BAH , I

Hello - I have a few questions regarding divorce and BAH JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: I think the page I'm on is a similar case Married without kids we have already filed our paperwork we are literally waiting on the judge to sign the final documents but this is taking a while he has "voluntarily" given me half of the BAH he has received each month but was doing so only while deployed. As the paperwork has ta***** *****er to be signed by the judge than he thinks is "acceptable" he is now giving me grief about paying this I am trying to find out if this is something that should have been garnished via mypay through his command not personally between the two of us and if he does in fact stop paying it until the divorce decree is final, are there any actions I can take to require this of him We agreed no spousal support from each other, with the exception of this 1/2 BAH as he told me it was mandatory even tho I said we would not seek traditional/ ongoing spouse support JA: OK got it. Last thing — Military Lawyers generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

I had started dating a man in the Army and he told me he

I had started dating a man in the Army and he told me he needed money due to someone taking money out of his Navy Federal account and his pay being garnished because he had been being over paid. He also had an issue come up with his car that I took care of since he was in a bind. I ended up giving him a total of $800 and paying a little over $600 for the car. After this time, he phone was also cut off due to a late bill. Instead of sending more money, I call the phone company to pay the bill only to find out all the lines on the account were active and the amount I was told was almost $130 more than the actual balance. At this time I realized I had been being lied to repeatedly. Is there any way that it would be mandatory for him to give me the money back? I have texts, receipts, and bank statements showing the payments and an agreement to pay me back, but since being "caught" I have not heard back from him.
