Desertion is a serious charge against a service member

One of the reasons that the United States military is the strongest in the world is the ingrained sense of duty, discipline and respect for hierarchy that service members embrace when they take on the incredible role of soldier, sailor or airman. Virginia residents who have served in the armed forces can attest to the importance of trusting one's fellow service members and understanding the importance of fulfilling one's responsibilities not only to protect their personal safety but also to protect the well-being of others in their units.

Customize a family care plan for post-divorce peace of mind

As a parent in Virginia who also serves as a member of the U.S. military, you are undoubtedly no stranger to challenge and sacrifice. If you are one of many military service men or women who are currently preparing to navigate the divorce process, your greatest concerns likely include child custody issues as well as the care of your children if your military duties take you overseas. You may already be familiar with a family care plan, which the military strongly encourages all service members who are parents to possess.

Taxing error may result in refunds to veterans

An error in the computation of taxes regarding military disability severance pay will result in more than 130,000 veterans receiving refunds from the government. Virginia veterans who received these lump-sum payments and were taxed on them after January 1992, may be eligible for refunds and, therefore, may receive notifications from the Department of Defense regarding their eligibility.

Non discretionary allotment may be used to pay off child support

A member of the United States military who is subject to a Virginia child support order is required to make payments under that order for the financial benefit of their child. If the service member is able to keep up with their payments in a timely manner, then they may not run into any issues regarding enforcement of the order. If, however, the service member falls behind on their payments, then they may see a non discretionary allotment taken out of their pay for the satisfaction of the delinquent child support payments.

What is a security clearance?

Many jobs that Virginia residents apply for might require them to submit to finger printing and other background checks. Generally, these investigations provide employers with important information about their prospective employees' fitness to serve as representatives of their organizations. A security clearance is a highly involved background check that enables a person to take on a job in the military or with a governmental agency.
