OK about your son, thats not true at all. Can you get a lawyer YES, but its up to the judge to decide if you get your child or not. As far as Basic, (ARMY) is 9 weeks plus reception which is anywhere from 1 week to 4 weeks. Then he will go to AIT which is anywhere between 5 weeks and over a year depending on the job he picks. You get paid the first time 30 days after he is in either on the 1st or the 15th. You will get paid BAH and his pay if you're married. You and your family are covered by insurance as soon as he leaves for BCT. Best of luck.
