Started a new Conversation How To Validate DateTime Laravel

Hey guys, I am saving in the database a DateTime format for creating an appointment. I have two inputs one for start_time and the other for end_time and it saves like this 2019-09-16 08:00:00. In the view for create I have a datepicker for selecting just the date then I have starting_hour and starting_minute and finally I have finish_hour and finish_minute and for joining it for the correct format of DateTime I did this:

$appointment->start_time = "".$request->date_request." ".$request->starting_hour .":".$request->starting_minute.":";
$appointment->finish_time = "".$request->date_request." ".$request->finish_hour .":".$request->finish_minute.":";

So it saves like this start_time: 2019-09-16 08:00:00 and finish_time: 2019-09-16 08:00:00. The problem I have is on the valiation because it is for appointments so finish_hour can not be before start_hour. The date won´t change because it is for appoinments for one hour so i will use the same day but when trying to validate the hour I have problems. I have tried with

'starting_hour'    =>  'required',
'starting_minute'   =>  'required',
'finish_hour'   =>  'required|after:starting_hour',
'finish_minute'    =>  'required',

But when trying to save I get

The finish hour must be a date after starting hour.

I am guessing this is because Laravel validation thinks also the date must be after the starting date but I only want the hour to be after the starting_hour. So how can I validate just the finish_hour to be after the starting_hour?

Started a new Conversation Synchronous Execution Working Fine But Problems With Asynchronous JQuey Ajax

I'm starting to use jquery with ajax but I have a problem. I´m using spatie/permission and I have been able to implement 100% working with synchronously execution but now with ajax and Asynchronous execution on the edit part I have problems. With synchronously execution I have the user and I assign it a role like this.

public function edit($id)
        // scotch
        $roles = Role::get();
        // $roles = Role::pluck('name', 'id')->all();
        return view('user.edit', compact('user', 'roles'));

And on the view I have this

<div class="row">
        <form-group class="col-md-6">
          @foreach ($roles as $role)
            {{ Form::checkbox('roles[]',  $role->id, $user->roles ) }}
            {{ Form::label($role->name, ucfirst($role->name)) }} <br>

As a result I have the checkbox CHECKED with the role assigned to thah user this is working fine but with jquery and ajax I´m not beeing able to pass that CHECKED checkbox. I can pass to the create modal for user the roles created and I can save it but when I want to edit it I don´t know how to it from the database just I did it with the synchronously execution. I have this on the Asynchronous execution

public function index()
        $roles = Role::get();
        // $user = User::findOrFail($id);
        return view('user.index', compact('roles'));

public function store(Request $request)
        $user=new User();
        $roles = $request['roles']; //Retrieving the roles field
        if (isset($roles)) //Checking if a role was selected
            foreach ($roles as $role) 
                $role_assign = Role::where('id', '=', $role)->firstOrFail();            
                $user->assignRole($role_assign); //Assigning role to user

        return Response::json($input);

On the edit part

    public function edit($id)
        $user = User::findOrFail($id);
        return Response::json([$user);

And on the view for Asynchronous

<div class="form-group col-md-6">
   <input type="hidden" name="role_id" id="role_id">
          @foreach ($roles as $role)
               {{ Form::checkbox('roles[]', $role->id, $user->roles) }}
                      {{  ucfirst($role->name) }}
                 </label> <br>

jQuery part

/* When click edit user */
        $(document).on('click', '.edit-user', function(){
            // user_id=$(this).attr('id');
            var id = $(this).data('id');
            // console.log(id);
                url: "/user/"+id+"/edit",
                dataType: 'json',
                success: function(data){
                    $('#user-title').html("Editar usuario");

                var value=$("#user_id").val();
                    data: $('#user-form').serialize(),                   
                    url: "/user/update",
                    method: "POST",
                    dataType: 'json',
                    success: function(data)
                        var Table = $('#users-table').dataTable();
                    error: function(data){
                        alert('Disculpe, ocurrio un problema. Vuelva a intentar');
                        $('#btn-save').html('Volver a intentar');

So how can I pass the CHECKED boxes to the modal when user clicks edit?
