Military law questions

American military law questions.

Would custody dispute between a military officer and their civilian (ex)spouse be tried in a civilian or military court? Would the officer (if they weren't willing to hire a costly civilian attorney) have a military lawyer?

In a similar vein, if a civil dispute between military officers arose, would it be tried in a civilian court?

I know that the Navy and the Marines are covered by JAG, but what about the Army and Airforce? Do they have their own legal departments? And if so, (related to the above question about disputes between officers) for example an Army and Navy officer had a dispute, which court would handle it?

Whew. This sounded a LOT less complicated in my head.
