Hi all, I was in the air force a few years back and need some info for my particular situation. I served for 1yr 8mo and was basically kicked out for fraudulent enlistment. I never was in any kind of trouble for this. They actually asked me if I wanted to stay in and switch careers(was in intel). The thing that is probably weird to most of you is that I still received an honorable discharge. Now for my question: I'm going to court for a custody battle for my step son and the court is suspicious of my shorter than average term with an honorable discharge. Could they find out the reason for leaving? I'd rather just bring to court the edited dd214 form and not disclose the reason for leaving. I just wanted to make sure this can't be found in a background search by the other lawyer. I feel that showing them proof of my honorable discharge should be sufficient enough. The only suspicion they had was that they kind of didn't believe that I got out with an honorable discharge, but I can prove this. Anyway, enough rambling. Thanks to whoever can shed some light on this situation of mine!

Unless the reason for your discharge is classified, I don't know why MilPerCen wouldn't honor a court order for your personnel file or a more specific request for the narrative reason for your discharge.
If you obfuscate or conceal information from the court, and the court gets onto the fraudulent enlistment, I doubt the outcome will be as favourable as an honorable discharge.
You've got this topic running over in the Veterans and Retirees forum, so let's let Dave and Dave offer their far more expert opinions.
