  • I am re-writing previous question. I have a client whose son is an officer of Marines.

    I am re-writing previous question.
    I have a client whose son is an officer of Marines. The son brought suit to remove his father as trustee of father's revocable living trust, paying his attorney's retainer with dad's credit card which he had been authorized for use by Dad for use to travel home, rent car and the like. Article 121 issue?
    Son also used Dad's air mile account for personal travel not related to coming home. How do I subpoena travel claims for the unaccounted-for travel to determine if he used miles for govt. travel?
    Dad loaned $60,000 to son as son has underwater mortgage on CA home and other debts which son told Dad might affect his ability to keep security clearances (according to Dad.) To what extent may his command be involved in the collection of the debt without violating Fair Debt Collection Act and, perhaps, the Soldiers and Sailors relief Act.
