Am i able to rejoin after a family care plan chapter? I PCs after just having my baby and didn’t know anyone yet and i only had 30 days so after my 30 days they started my paperwork but i wanted to stay in. What do i need to do to get back in? Of course have a care plan in place but how long do i have to wait?

The 30 day requirement hasn't changed. The next time you PCS you will be required to have another FCP in place within 30 days of arriving.

SPC (Join to see) ok, dumb guy question. If you wanted to stay in, why didn't you get your family care plan straightened out? If it takes more than 30 days but you had a definite date you could get it filed, did you tell your chain of command that? It would be commander's discretion, but they could extend it, unless you jammed them up right before SRP and deployment.

Contact a recruiter. It will depend on your RE Code and Characterization of Discharge. The common sense thing is, what will be different between now and when you reenlist? You will likely have an RE Code of 3 or 4 on your DD214 and that will require a waiver. How,long does that take? As long as it does and not a minute more. You are not going to be in control of this process and time will vary.

I only had 30 days, the day care on post was packed and i was on the waiting list. I had no short term to put on my family care plan since i had just got there, i hadn’t found anyone. No wasn’t before a deployment, i think mostly it was bc at my previous unit no one told me to do a care plan so i hadn’t had one in place there nor when i got to the new unit. Thanks.

SPC (Join to see) - AR601-210 Chapters 3 and 4. Ask a recruiter. They operate off USAREC business rules on top,of the regulation.

You didn't go to TDS when you were notified of Chapter?

I would figure that as long as you have an Honorable Discharge and your RE Code is a 1, then you should be able to join back up fairly quickly. But, to get a definitive answer, walk into your nearest Recruiter office and ask them. Best case scenario is you get the ball rolling again right away.
