Failure to pay alimony can hurt a military career

There are a number of issues that a couple must work out when the partners choose to end their marriage. A couple in Fairfax may have to decide custodial matters regarding their kids, such as where the children should live and if both of the parents will be involved in the decision-making processes that influence how their kids are raised. The partners may have to work out how they will divide their property and if and how support should be paid.

Are possible hidden assets a divorce concern of yours?

As you prepare to leave your married life behind and set goals for a new, single lifestyle, there are many decisions to make and issues to discuss with your spouse before entering divorce proceedings. Especially where your children are concerned and other important matters, such as property division and your future financial status, it is often best to try to work out as much as you can ahead of time so you merely need to seek the court's approval rather than hash it all out in court.

What is non-judicial punishment?

A Virginia service member who allegedly commits a felony may be subject to criminal conviction as well as court-martial procedures from their branch of the military. A court-martial is a serious process through which a service member may be dishonorably discharged from their branch of service and may, in the future, be denied access to veterans' benefits that they otherwise could have received but for the circumstances of their release from service.

Don't let your past bar you from the military career you want

It takes a special man or woman to commit to service in the armed forces. A person must be able to put others before themselves to be a member of the United States military and numerous Virginia residents answer that call each year. However, unlike civilian lines of work where people can often walk into jobs with little to no review of their histories, military careers often require applicants to submit to significant scrutiny into their pasts.

Uncle Sam cares about DUI

While considering enlisting in the U.S. military in Virginia, you are likely aware that you will make many personal sacrifices and place yourself at risk on more than one occasion in your effort to uphold the Constitution and protect and defend the citizens of the United States. The profession is one to which most citizens give honor and gratitude for its members' services. If DUI winds up on your criminal record, it may greatly impede your eligibility status to join the military.

Reasons that a security clearance may be denied

A security clearance is an important component of gaining access to careers in the military. Fairfax residents may also need to apply for and obtain security clearances if they wish to pursue careers in certain parts of the federal government. This post will provide information on reasons why a person's security clearance application could be denied. It is not specific to military applications for security clearances and individuals with specific inquiries are encouraged to discuss their security clearance concerns with competent legal representatives.

As an active member of the military where may I file for divorce?

The life of a military family can be rewarding but also transitory. It is often required of service members to frequently relocate for new assignments or to take on more responsibilities as they ascend the ranks of their chosen branches of service. Members of the military who are currently based in Virginia may have arrived at their current posts after a number of other moves throughout the world.

What is a discharge upgrade?

Men and women who commit their lives to service in the United States military often are eligible for benefits after their periods of service end. Whether they may receive those benefits, though, can depend upon the manner in which they were discharged from their branches of service. This post will generally discuss military discharges, what those different discharges can mean for Fairfax residents, and what a person can do to improve their discharge status.
