Mr. Elliott is the best source for any military legal matter!
Mr. Elliott has assisted me in upgrading my disability rating from 90% to 100%. That is a life changer! His experience as a JAG Officer and VA Director gives him a unique advantage in representing you, to either keep what you have earned in a divorce or to help you receive what you have earned in disabilities. There are so few lawyers that truly understand the military pay/retirement/benefit plan that the military provides. If you go to court without Mr. Elliott in a divorce, you are taking a huge risk that your lawyer or judge won't understand the difference between pay and benefit. This could be very costly to you! Mr. Elliott has been a game changer in regards to my financial future for me and my dependents.

Summary

I have spent over 25 years assisting military members in divorces, administrative hearings, or more serious matters such as murder trials or less serious encounters with the criminal justice system. This experience along with my four years of administering seven nursing homes while the Executive Director of Veterans Affairs has supplied me with the knowledge to assist my clients with superior knowledge to navigate the criminal and civil pitfalls when a crisis occurs. I was consulted by the State legislators on the legislation that now exists to protect the rights of deployed parents to ensure their custodial rights are kept intact or transferred while deployed. I have also obtained acquittals in a murder trial and two other life sentence cases. I have also served as a prosecutor in District Attorney's office after my Active duty tour in the Army as a Judge Advocate. I continued my career in the National Guard and retired at the rank of Brigadier General.

5 Questions Answered

Q. it's been over a year since my husband filed for divorce I was wondering if the divorce papers expire
A: The case hangs on until the parties or the court take an action to dismiss the case. Some courts clean up their dockets regularly, others not at all.
Q. What kind of questions will DHS in Oklahoma ask when they make a visit to a house. It's a first offense?
A: You could be looking at the possibility of DHS filing a deprived petition and your children being placed in DHS custody. You better go at least talk to a lawyer that handles these types of cases to discuss the details.
Q. How do I file objection and request for hearing to a temporary injunction in regards to minor child custody and support?
A: If it’s just in the initial stages you have to file an answer to the petition. If you’ve been paying a while you have to file a motion to modify.
Q. If my mom signed her rights away of me to my father. Would that put in place a no contact order between me and my mom?
A: She can't sign her rights away as their is no right or private termination. If there was then deadbeat parents would just sign their rights away and never pay child support.
Q. My mother passed 10 months ago with no will. Her name is the only name on the title. My father still lives in the house
A: A summary probate is most likely your best bet. It isn't that expensive. I haven't done one in a while but they aren't that difficult.
