Customer Question
almost all of her 401k...
My grandmother is about to lose her job and has already used almost all of her 401k. I have been giving her 500 dollars a month to help out, but that's not enough. I need to find a way to either claim her as my dependent, or live off base as a PFC at a new duty station so she can stay with me. please help!
JA: The Military Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: No. I am still in school, therefore I haven't had the chance to take the next step.
JA: Is there anything else the Military Lawyer should be aware of?
Customer: I don't think so
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Military Lawyer about your situation and connect you two.

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.
