Thanks for your information so far. I've recently married

Thanks for your information so far. I've recently married and become a step father to a young boy with Downs Syndrome. I certainly underestimated the time and attention I would need to dedicate to his care. I cannot see any way to give him the attention he needs while still being in the national guard. My unit is deploying and our training schedule is very much interfering with life at home, making his progress in school tedious to say the least. Is this reasonable grounds to request a hardship discharge, considering my new family situation?

Please give me a bit more information, so we can help you best. Customer: I've been in for a year. I already received a bachelor's degree before joining. I was working in my field before joining as well. Apparel design. I'm married, husband is Army Reserve. I'm having a hard time concentrating since I've been upset for about 6 months, depression. Everyday is a struggle, and I find myself thinking about a career back in apparel design. I was happy there before, and I feel I will be happy there again. I just need to get there. I am a good soldier, I do what I am suppose to and have no negative counselings. I've been talking to a counselor for a short time to deal with my depression, but I think the best solution is to be out of the Army.

Is there anything else the Military Lawyer should be aware of? Customer: I don't know, I don't think so. I've been talking to my chain of command about this and they say they are looking into it, I just haven't heard back yet. JA: OK. Got it.
