Military Criminal Defense Attorney for Administration Separation
Contact Dishman Military Advocates Now
Searching for a military defense attorney for an administration separation?
If you are going to be involuntarily discharged from any branch of the
military, you need to do everything possible to receive an honorable discharge.
Failure to do so could seriously restrict your employment options in civilian
life, as well as affect your eligibility to receive benefits from the
Veteran's Administration. By getting the help of an experienced military
law attorney to prepare your case and represent you during your
discharge hearing, you can improve the chances of a successful outcome. Need a military
lawyer for an administration separation case? Contact Dishman Military
Advocates to discuss your impending discharge and your options for defense.
Prior to your discharge, you will get a written notification from your
Commanding Officer with details regarding the reasons you are receiving
a general discharge rather than an honorable discharge. You will have
to sign a form to acknowledge that this classification may cause you difficulty
during civilian life, such as in receiving GI Bill benefits. You will
not be eligible for VA benefits if you receive an Other Than Honorable
Conditions Discharge (UOTHC), which is reserved for the most serious administrative
discharge cases. If you have been convicted of a crime or have been accused
of acting in a way that would dishonor the armed forces, you will most
likely be subjected to an UOTHC discharge. More serious breaches of the
Uniform Military Code of Justice will be referred to a
Special Courts Martial or a
General Courts Martial.
