I'm a law student focusing on family issues - however I cannot give you legal advice. Please seek an attorney - if you are active duty you should be able to get assistance @ your Command Judge Adovcate's office. If not, you should seek the guidance of an attorney out on the economy. Expensive, yes but worth it.
Generally states look at many factors in determining alimony - length of marriage, both spouse's education, earning capacity and work experience. I don't know of any short marriages that anything other than very temporary alimony was ordered - to help the receiving party find a job or enroll in a job trainig program and a general guideline is not longer than the length of a short (under 10 years) marriage. Also for her to conisder - alimony is taxable income to her - and an income reduction on taxes for you.
As far as seeking sole physical custody the supreme court has held that being active duty can no longer be the SOLE basis for denying a service member full custody. something to consider is that you will then be able to remain in base housing if you have custody 6 months and 1 day a year. You will also need to come up with a parenting plan that will address long distance visitation because you will be PCS'd and unless she follows your movements there will be an issue there, too.
As far as who gets physical custody the courts are supposed to look at the best interest of the child. An underemployed parent is not the strongest factor in making that determination.
I hope I've at least been able to give you some things to think about... please contact your legal assistance office ASAP.
Information About Being A Juvenile Lawyer As A Career Needed! Please!?
I'M Thinking About Becoming A Juvenile Lawyer When I Get Older... I'M Doing A Career Project At School And It Seems A Juvenile Lawyer Is One Of The Least Popular Type Of Lawyer, Meaning I Cannot Find A Lot Of Information On This Type Of Lawyer... Any Information About Juvenile Lawyers Would Be Helpful! Thank Youu :)
When people go to law school, they all take basically the same courses. They are, however, able to choose some electives. Juvenile lawyers work in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems.
I think you would find it helpful to see a reference librarian at your local public library. I don't think you will find a lot of information online easily.

How Do Lawyers (Specifically Criminal Defense Attorneys) Use Computers In Their Career Field?
I Am A Freshman In College, And I'M Going To College To Eventually Become A Criminal Defense Attorney. In My Computers Class, We Have To Give A Presentation On How Computers Are Used In Our Career Field. I'M Hoping Some People, Or Even True Lawyers, Could Give Me Some Advice. Thanks!
#1 use: word processing
#2 use: research
Choosing a career is one of life's most important decisions. If you possibly can, change your major asap.
The legal profession is dramatically changing and is in CRISIS!!! Every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television. There are many myths regarding the field of Law: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track every activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is fiction - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement), as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools!!!*****<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.

How Is A Judge (Family Law) Able To Remove Herself Off A Case? Why Would This Happen?
We Have Been With This Judge For Over The Course Of 2 Yrs Now And We Recently Had A Hearing. At The Point Of Checking In With The Clerk, She Let Us Know Then That The Judge Has Removed Herslef From Our Case And We Are Now With A Different Judge!!! Wow. Why And How Is This Possible?????
+ Please Only Answer If You Know The Reason. No Smart Allic Comments Please. This Is My Sons Life I Am Talking About. Thanx In Advance! +
There are several reasons why a judge removes herself from a case. The judge could have discovered a conflict of interest. The judge may have a schedule conflict. The court system in your jurisdiction may have rotating duties for judges.
If there is a family law case complicated enough that there are repeated appearances over two years, litigants in that case should have been represented by attorneys. If your son is a party in that case, have your son ask his attorney why the judge removed herself from the case. If your son is a minor in this case, and you are a party, ask your attorney. You may also ask the minor's attorney ad litem why the judge removed herself.
