Yes, this really works. No, it doesn't ring in the White House. The email address and phone number are staffed by a seemingly serious group of players, many who are veterans, and if you have a legit issue, telling these folks is like bringing in the artillery. Let's prepare for your call or email. Make some notes before you proceed so you don't forget anything. I prefer email since there's no waiting for someone to answer and I can take my time to prepare the story in just the right detail. Be sure to include your DOB, your last 4, contact info...a couple of numbers, your preferred email and such. Describe the problem as briefly as you can. Less is more. Include the necessary components but don't tell your life story. Don't rant. Be polite...military courtesy will get you places that hollering IN ALL CAPS won't. Respect! Don't waste their time with bogus complaints about your feelings being hurt. If you appropriately utilize this service, I'll vouch that this works like a champ. Tell them you read about this at The VAWatchdog Dot Org...they know who we are.

I was wandering if a military member married in the state of Illinois is contesting a divorce how log it can take and after how long he can get remarried?
To contest a divorce and predict outcomes from such action will depend on how complex the divorce is in the first place. It really doesn't matter if a party is a veteran or active military in all but a few instances of OCONUS deployment and such.
If there is a lot of property, money, children or other issues that are up for dispute and lawyers are deeply involved, the process can last weeks, months, or more.
If the action is no-fault, as most divorces are these days, and there is little to dispute the divorce can be done in one session of the court. No-fault divorce isn't very complex, the court follows a set pattern each time and parties fill out papers prior to the hearing so a lot of what happens will have already been determined.
I'm not aware of any barriers to remarriage. Once divorced either party is free to remarry should they choose to do that...they're single again.
Question: Sir, Can they consider my VA Disability compensation as income for child support?
Jim's Reply: Yes, absolutely. Your disability income is awarded to you so you can support yourself and your family. Divorce doesn't end that responsibility and your VA disability income will be counted toward the total of your yearly income as the divorce court makes decisions. There are many rumors on-line about how VA disability income is protected and such, none of it true. If you don't report your disability income to the court you may be sanctioned for that. If you fall behind on child support or alimony payments your VA disability payment may be apportioned (garnished) to pay arrearages.
The simple fact is that you owe your children all you can give, the child support is only the start. Pay it proudly. Good luck.
Question: Hi Jim, I’m currently going through a divorce and I’m at a loss as to where to look for denial of paternity paperwork I signed for eons ago in Texas. I don’t have a lawyer and am doing all the foot work myself. Would you have any idea where to get this paperwork? P.S. I’ve tried the hospital, vital statistics, and attorney generals child support office. They can see the paperwork, but they can’t give it to me.
Jim's Reply: This is a new one on me and I've done just a bit of research and it appears that the Texas Department of Vital Statistics isn't required to provide you with any data. See Sec. 160.412. at https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/FA/htm/FA.160.htm#160.307
That's about all I have to offer. You really need to speak with an attorney before you get over your head with a DIY divorce.
I'm all for no fault and DIY until a complication is known and then you need to bring in an expert.
Divorce, Child Support, and VA Disability Payments
I get a lot of communication from divorcing veterans, their spouses, friends, neighbors...everyone has a strong opinion about military divorce, civilian divorce and veterans divorce. In a nutshell, there is only a civilian divorce. The military didn't marry you, the state you were in did. A state will divorce you, the VA wants nothing to do with it. Your status as a veteran carries zero weight in divorce court. Nobody cares what a hero you were and what a tramp she is as your spouse...most divorces are no-fault so the process is pretty simple. When you enter into a divorce court you have your dignity and credibility with you and nothing else. Nobody cares about who did what to whom, they just want to follow the formula that state uses and get you out of there.
There are no free veterans divorce lawyers. There are no free divorce lawyers.
Most divorce courts are set up for pro bono litigants so you can represent yourself. Often enough you can appear by phone if circumstances merit. Divorce sucks. Divorce is painful for everyone. Do your best to not make a fool of yourself and as time passes, so with all this.
