  • I am currently active duty 19 years. Divorced 2 years ago. Spouse is eligible for a share of my retirement. However the decree states I must begin to pay her share of my retirement beginning the month I am eligible to retire. It was based of a % share. No lawyer or my military office can give me how much that share is in dollars they tell me they will know when I retire. How can I pay her monthly when no one knows the amount until I retire? Is it even Legal that I have to pay her retirement if I haven’t retired? Did I not get good representation?
  • My next door neighbor had bed bugs, now we do, we are connected condos, 25 units. Who is responsible for extermating these little buggers? Tenant or landlord? We have tried with home remedies, the land Lord did have one bed room exterminated, but doesn't want to pay to have the whole unit done he says it's up to us to do it. We are on SSI and social security and can not afford to have it done professionally, what are our rights?
