I received a dishonorable discharge from the Air National Guard in the 70's. I was was in a terrible car accident and had many operations on my hand. I was on pain medication and lost interest in many things in my life at that period of time. If I recall correctly. I talk to the commanding officer and requested a medical discharge. I had imitated usage of my right hand for a long period of time. I stopped going to monthly drills. My life is very good now, I have to grow children one in medical school and the other working for a large company in NYC. I own a small company with eight employees.

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.

My son was at Air Force boot camp, halfway through. He was

Hello,My son was at Air Force boot camp, halfway through. He was selected to get an Intelligence branch job and was starting the clearance process when in one interview he was asked if he had ever attempted suicide. He said he had, as a child of 12 or so (this was news to his mother and I). Based on that, the Air Force told him he could apply for a waiver and wait, or go home and apply for the waiver. Now he is being told there is no way that the waiver will be granted, after he was told yes, there is a chance. I don't know the details of what he actually did, but does not the fact that he was a child, and there was no Emergency Room visit or any kind of medical problem resulting from the attempt have any mitigating effect? He is now processing out and will be home in a few days. Assuming he would like to try to get back in, what would you advise?

In my last question I told that I'm supposed to leave

In my last question I told that I'm supposed to leave boot camp for reserve navy in few days. And due to certain situations in my life, probably I will not be able to join boot camp. I was told in this forum that I will get ELS (entry level separation) and it will not impact my naturalization process for US citizenship. Currently I'm a US law full permanent resident. Now my question is that when I was reading "ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR NATURALIZATION APPLICATION BY USCIS", there are 2 things, about which I want to know1-Have you ever received a discharge from US armed forces on the ground that you are an alien?My question is that iam a lawful permanent resident and of course alien. In my case, if I get ELS discharge for not joining boot camp, do I get into this question category?
