Hi my name is ***** ***** and I would like to know if you get separation pay for Chapter 8 pregnancy. A soldier was asking me and I was trying to find the answer.

Lawyer's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I'm not sure how far along she is but she has already been counseled by the commander. She is a single parent struggling in the military.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
