Denial of Chapter 5-8?
 Login/Join
 

posted
I have almost 11 years in and have submitted a Chapter 5-8. I am due to ETS this coming November. My husband is dual and is on orders to PCS next month. I was told my packet is in legal for review. Is their a chance it will get denied? My command hasn't required me to come back to work after maternity leave which ended over a month ago. It's rather strange but it gives me hope that they are trying to usher me out the door. If it is denied, I will be separated from my husband until I ETS and he the two children.

So your AWOL? Or your just getting paid to do nothing?


I got nothing.

I was thinking the same thing.

Good lord, no! I submitted for leave while the chapter was being done which was immediately after maternity leave.

So...if your leave was approved, why put that quote? Nothing strange about taking leave...

Is it possible to apply a Chapter 8 in this instance? I thought it was for those who ARE pregnant, NOT after you've given birth...

It was strange because it was an additional 30 on top of the 42 maternity days. And a chapter 8 is for pregnancy, the chapter 5-8 is a lack of a family care plan. I'm not going to get an answer, am I?

You're getting a bunch of questions and no answers because your post is filled with question marks.
1. You say things like "my command hasn't required me to come to work"...which was over a month ago, implies that you're AWOL or skipping out while collecting a paycheck.
2. "It gives me hope that they are trying to usher me out the door." Sounds like you don't want to be in (which is fine) but your statement sounds more like "I'm of no use to my unit so they want to hurry up and put me out."
3. You state that you have submitted for Chapter 5-8, lack of family care plan. Again, IMO this sounds like a cop out to fulfilling your service obligation which ends in 8 months. If you wanted to you could develop a family care plan and complete your obligation.
4. If you're dual military and had planned a little better, you could have both PCS'd to the same location. I see it ALL the time.
5. If your intention was to get yourself chaptered out, (assumption based on YOU submitting for chapter 5-8) why didn't you just take the chapter 8?
So, to answer your question, yes. It can get denied. Nothing is 100%, and your unit or legal may just tell you to develop an FCP and ETS in Nov.
