What is your reason for an expedite?


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

JAG should help, usually a redeployment is a good reason to expedite.

Deployments aren't the same as overseas assignments. OP is talking about an over seas assignment it seems. So hes not in a combat zone and not being deployed to one. Being sent home to the USA.

Also Jag doesn't help with expedites. Divorce and adoption and pre-nups but not much at all help with immigration.

JAGS are the lawyers on base, but they will not help you with immigration work.

This is absolutely NOT true. Depends on the branch, the location (mainland? Okinawa?), the office size (and docket) and the situation. Since you are not married the military member would be the client but your best bet is the AF Office on okinawa or the Army office on the mainland. For the most part, the Marine bases (in okinawa) are larger (except for Kadena but I think you could get lucky there) and the JAs are doing less immigration work, but there are definitely JAs who do immigration work. I have been stationed overseas my entire Military career and have found ones in Japan have easier legal assistance dockets than say, Germany.

With that being said, a PCS to the States is not the same as a deployment, but it wouldn't hurt to ask.

**Sidenote, JAs will help with Separation agreements but not usually deal with actual divorces.
