"Welcome to -- When adult children marry and leave home, life can sometimes get more complex instead of simpler.  Being a mother-in-law or daughter-in-law can be tough.  How do we extend love and support to our mothers-in-law, adult children, daughters-in-law, sons-in-law, and grandchildren without interfering?  What do we do when there are communication problems?  How can we ask for help when we need it without being a burden?  And how do our family members feel about these issues?  We invite you to join our free forum, read some posts... and when you're ready...share your challenges and wisdom."

Here we go....again.

So my YS is getting deployed.  I knew it was coming and have been preparing for it.  What I wasn't prepared for was a phone call from him this weekend.  One of the big issues with his DD and not seeing her is his inability to get back in court, being in the military.  Long story that I've told before, so I will not bore you again.

The call is because he is being deployed, he had the option of giving me full power of attorney over his affairs.  In researching it with the military's legal department, if he gave me full power of attorney, I can act on his behalf in regards to court and DD.  I can also assume his visitation on his behalf, because of a military law in our state.  So the call was to ask me if I wanted to do that.  Well of course I want to see GD.  I told him that if he granted that to me, I would then seek the opinion of an attorney after getting it to see what my options are.  So here I go again.....  ;D

Good luck, Pooh.  It says a lot that he trusts you to have that kind of power and access in his life.  Sending my best thoughts!
This too shall pass.  All is well.


I know it's a lot on your plate but I'm happy for you, Pooh!  Definitely give us play-by-play accounts so we can cheer you on.


Nice going..... Wish you all the luck....go for is worthwhile.

Hate the fact that he is being deployed (tell him thank you for his service), but glad that he's putting you in the mix and making it so you can see your GC.  You will be a great advocate for your GC.  Keep us updated for sure.


Pooh, I so hope it works out for you!

Thank you much.  I have to get the paperwork, sign it....mail it back....military notarizes it and gets me a copy....mails it back........

So it could take a few weeks knowing the military.  Once I get it, I'll schedule a consultation here with one of our barracudas.  (And that's not downing a lawyer...I WANT a barracuda! Lol.)
