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?

Sir. I am currently going through a divorce and am afraid

Hello Sir. I am currently going through a divorce and am afraid my wife will take so much that if affects the life I will be able to give my little girls.

Is this true Sir. Thank you

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?
