Italy
US Military Law

What divorce laws apply when a couple marry in Italy and then move to the U.S.?

I am not absolutely sure but I believe the divorce laws of the country you are living in would apply. For example, if you divorce here in the US you would have to adhere to the US Divorce Laws not Italy's.

Revised Answer

as you know you could marry in any country you want - the problem is when its not registered in the US its void, although if it is from your home of record and registered

you have to follow host nation law the country in which you married in. If you married an Italian in the US or other than Italy you have to go there for the divorce hopefully

you didnt get married in Itay in which you have to be separated for 3 years and have to wait for the finale sighning and then it takes 40-60 days to get the divorce certificate, I would say I'm creditable.

US Military Law

Can Lt Col Andre Gathers be tried for adultery and be court martialed?

Yes, he can be. Adultry is a chargable offense under the UCMJ. It can be charged under several articles of the UCMJ depending on the exact circumstances. Some of these include: Article 133 (Conduct unbecoming an officer), Article 134 (General Article), Article 92 (Failure to obey an order or regulation) among others. As a LtCol, he would likely be tried at a General court martial. It is, however, unlikely he would be taken to court-martial unless there were serious aggravating circumstances. Most of these cases are handled through a Board of Inquiry (BOI) in which the officer must show cause for retention. This is a non-judicial procedure which means punishments are very limited. However, the BOI can recommend separation from the military with an Under Other Than Honorable Conditions characterization of service which is extremely prejudicial in post-service civilian life.

Life Insurance
Estates
US Military Law

How do you find out if sibling and executor cashed in a military life insurance policy upon father's death without notifying other family members?

No one is an executor until they have been appointed by a court. Until the court appointment they have no legal authority to collect any assets owned by the decedent. The executor is required to file an inventory of all the property owned by the decedent or owed to the estate.

If the insurance policy listed named beneficiaries then it won't be part of the estate. You really need to know the policy number to check to see if the policy was surrendered for payment and also to determine the identity of the payees.

Could you plead the 5th in a captains mast?

The equivalent right in the military is to plead Article 31 of the UCMJ.

Captain's Mast is not a court proceeding, it is nonjudicial punishment. One of the advantages of a Captain's Mast is that while it does have a negative affect on your military career, it is not something that records as a criminal trial. You can refuse Captain's Mast and request a Special Court Martial.
