if its an amicable divorce with little or no assets, then only one of them really needs to go to legal... assuming they are both of average intelligence and not out to "screw" each other.... kind of like me and my ex... we just wanted to be apart and didnt have a lot of stuff to argue about...
A photographer out of Temecula is looking for help with a project to support a local military family whose one year old son has recently become extremely ill.
She is looking for military service members, in uniform, who will be able to be part of a free and brief photo shoot holding a sign of support for the family. She is looking to shoot Saturday morning.
If you or your spouse would like to be part of this please let me know so I can pass on her info to you/ your info to her. Branch of service does not matter - just have to be in uniform for the shoot.
was it a red truck?
YES! You red ;) my mind! /sarcasm/. To be exact..black..white..and RED all over.
I know what amicable means, but why would you suggest he let her use it over him? One way or another they aren't both going to be able to use Pendleton, he works there she can travel as she pleases freely.
"it has to be an "amicable" divorce, ie.. you have to agree on everything... "
how is either party getting "screwed over" if they agree on everything?
why pay lawyers $$,$$$.cc if there is little or nothing to split... all base legal does is tell you what you rate or are supposed to pay... then they draw up the documents...
If it's a contested divorce or there is retirement involved, i'd pay the lawyers.
was it a red truck?
I get they're a bunch of "old wives tales", but c'mon, people try pretty hard to defend them ;) . Even if they were old wive's tales and you knew about them I would make sure NOT to do any of them. The red porch light one is kind of hard to defend "oh we only had a RED bulb left" "we did it for the holidays"-but in July? LOL. I did however notice a truck in my neighbor's driveway and it outright disappeared the week before her husband came home from deployment. They were a "two car family" while he was gone ;). Ie. family aren't allowed to stay in housing for that long unless it was absolutely medically necessary to help the spouse, and she was pretty able bodied when I saw her.
he should let you use camp pendleton
Why? It's every person for themselves. Let her take base legal and get screwed over, no way.
How can it be your book if he authored it?
A red light is normally used by a hooker to advertise, thus the phrase "red light district".
There's a number of wives tales - red porch light, leaving a broom on the porch are all thought to signify a person is up for extra curricular activity while a spouse is deployed.
I was once told that the colored light bulb in the globes on our houses meant cheating ? Can anyone explain this.
Here is a great video taken from a Seminar by a US Marine Captain. Cesar Nader is one of the most extraordinary US veterans I have had the pleasure of meeting. He was a Captain in the US Marine Corps. He has been assisting other veterans for many years since. His primary concern, like mine, is to get transitioning military members on their feet in the civilian world ASAP. He works untiringly at that task. I know that even on his own dime he travels the US putting on transition seminars on US military bases. I was honored to have him participate in authoring my book An American Crisis: Veterans' Unemployment. Here is a recent video taken from one of his seminars. It is well worth your time to watch it.

yes, only one spouse can use the base legal...
he should let you use camp pendleton; ALSO, if you use base legal, it has to be an "amicable" divorce, ie.. you have to agree on everything...
My husband and I are divorcing. He said I could get legal aid from base legal. If he goes to Camp Pendleton, I have to go to Miramar. Any ideas where it is located? If this is true? Any and all advice is helpful.
thank you for your reply and advice. from what i've been reading on PU, it seems that they have started charging so I guess we will probably go with gas.
Most base houses have BOTH hookups. Electric dryers are cheaper to purchase, but gas is cheaper to run when you consider a monthly utility bill.
I'm not sure if base housing has started to charge for utilities when i lived on base they did not, but i heard they either are now or will in the future.
If you are buying new i'd suggest buying gas, if you are buying used and base isn't charging utilities an electric is the cheaper way to go.
we are moving on base soon and are planning to buy washer and dryers. does base housing have gas or electric connections for dryers? Also, will large washer and dryers fit? We are possibly moving into stuart mesa housing with 3 bd.
Maleficent, thank you so much for the info:) I will look into them.

America is still here because of those who have been willing to lay down their lives to protect us. Our Thanksgiving today is because of them. Most Americans will be with their families today and will enjoy that fellowship around a heavily laden table. But hundreds of thousands of our US Armed Forces will not. They are on guard, protecting us. Their families here at home will miss them.
We are so proud of all you. We love you. Thank you for the sacrifices and hardships you endure on our behalf.
Dear God, please protect our men and women in the US military. Watch over and provide for their families. Keep them safe. Bless them for their service to us. Especially be with those that have lost loved ones who died doing so. Make this day one of joy, instead of sadness. Especially bless the children of our veterans. Their lives are not like other US children’s.
Dear Jesus, be with our homeless veterans and their families who will not be enjoying this day as they deserve. Lift them up from their troubles. Set them on firm ground. Touch the hearts of every American to assist them. They are America's forgotten patriots.
Please bless America, dear Lord. Thank you for our nation’s power, resources and the liberty you have preserved for us. Hear our thanks today. You have led us throughout the centuries and kept our light shining. Praise your name!
What happened to you corpsmanwife? I enjoyed checking your page periodically for a good laugh but it hasn't been updated in ages :( haha hope all is well!
Off-base. LOL, no really, Serra Mesa is the ghetto as far as it goes community-wise. Search for threads on here about it. You can find much better housing off base for less if it's just the two of you. But if you're set on base, find E3 housing nearest to your husband's work or you're going to regret it down the road bc of the commute and traffic. The wives can be cray-cray. Nothing like brawls in the streets, but ghetto ass bored women calling animal control on you when you don't even own pets. Stuff like that. Go to some of the housing pages/groups on FB and you'll understand what I'm talking about. There are pockets of nice families, but I've witnessed some batty stuff with the people on base vs. when we lived off based prior.
What area does he work in?
You and your husband both work, yet you need to find out about a FREE tree?
Apparently you need to find something productive to do if you bumped a thread that hasn't seen the light of day for 12 days
Does anyone know where E5 should be placed in wire mtn 1? Could they be placed off of carnation or iris?
Hello everyone:) Just wondering if anyone knows where I could go on base to have an infant carseat installed or to make sure I have it installed into my car correctly? Is it any Fire Department or Police Station? It has been 13 years since I have had to use one and I will be a Nanny for a friend of mine soon so I want to be sure I have the carseat installed safely:) Thank you in advance:)
