A few days ago my nephew was arrested for desertion. He is

A few days ago my nephew was arrested for desertion. He is currently being held in Salt Lake County Jail. About 8 years ago he signed the papers to join the army, but never reported and never took an oath. I have been told that to resolve this he must go to Oklahoma for 1-3 weeks while waiting for a discharge as he has been somehow listed incorrectly as on being on active duty. Meanwhile he remains in jail with almost no contact with his wife, and to my knowledge no attorney has come to discuss his situation.I understand presently it is not military policy to prosecute those who change their minds between enlisting and reporting for basic training. Is that correct? If so, and my understanding of the facts is correct, is the procedure above the only way to resolve this?

My wife and I divorced in 1986. We were married 24 years. My wife receives part of my military retirement and all benefits. We had drawn up the divorce decree ourselves and listed 50% net of retirement. However, the Navy has NEVER adjusted her amount - it's been the same for 30 years. She is now asking for an adjustment to 50% of net - which will increase the pay to her by as much as $800. I'm at a loss - it will break me. I also have $660 of my $2700 as disability. Does that count in the 'net' part? Do I have any recourse?

My ex-spouse (we were married 10 years and I am a 20-year

Hello,My ex-spouse (we were married 10 years and I am a 20-year retiree, so she gets 50% of my retirement) is demanding that I provide records for how much she was paid by the Navy for past years. We have been divorced for over 13 years.DFAS has been paying her 50% by law automatically, and paid even more when I was adding child support. There's never been a problem with this.However, I made a bad judgment. For less than a year (Jan. 2015 - August 2016), I took some money from her 50% amount and added it my account for personal reasons linked to my present wife's medical condition - which is wrong.I have formally apologized to my ex for this and I have corrected the error by using my bank account and DFAS records to calculate how much I owe her. I began the DFAS allotment immediately and it goes into affect on 1 Sept. to repay all the money I took from her - ON TOP OF - the normal 50% amount of my retirement.A big mistake, but one I owned and wanted to correct immediately.Naturally, she was angry about it all. Now she believes that I have been fleecing her for past years and is demanding I provide proof of how much the Navy paid her.I don't have those records, and I don't feel obligated to do that since I've already started the pay-back process. She's calling me a cheat, although I've done this just once. I've paid all the federal and state taxes on the retirement, and periodically allotted more to her account to cover Christmas, Thanksgiving, birthdays and other needs for her and our daughter. My daughter is now an adult.I have been living in Europe with my 'new' wife (10 years) and family for about 11 years, and my ex is threatening to use legal action if I don't provide what SHE wants.Before this, we have NEVER had a problem with her payments or DFAS or even trust. We used to be good friends after the divorce. But now she's venting.What are my options and my responsibilities in this matter? What are her options?I'm not returning to the States for any reason. I live in the EU. I told her that once my debt to her is paid (via DFAS allotment), she will receive the normal 50% monthly payments as usual. Please advise.Respectfully, Joaquin
