Question

My claim is at the court of veteran appeals now. My questions are this:

1. If I am actting pro'se in my case, can I do an stipulation(try to come up with a compromise agreement to settle) with the general counsel of the appelle?

2. Can anyone help me with the stages in dealing with the cva?

3. Right now I am at the stage of D.O.R. How long does a case take at this level?

4. I need advise on what I should do. I been having a had time dealing with the general counsel.

5. WHen the general counsel submitted the DOR (before I submitted my counter). The records included my stay in the mental hospital in the service which I have NEVER SEEN BEFORE in which I been asking the VA for years to release that information to me which they said they never had!! Now they have it which could have help me estblish an PTSD years ago. Now, mysteriously they appear.

6. After finding out that they did have these records, what can I do about it?

7. Also after digging through all my paperwork. I found a letter telling them in 1986 that I was homeless and that I disagree with the c&p decision (which has a stamp seal from the VA) which they never included in the files either. I found my orginal copy and they one they submitted to me in 2004

Help me please

Thanks

Why are you pro se, have you been unable to find an attorney to represent you?

The Court is not a good place to be without an attorney. The only reason we filed a Writ of Mandamus request pro se to the Court is because it involved a pending remand that's been at the Appeals Management Center for years. You can't have attorney representation with appeals at the AMC, and these were first filed years before vets were allowed to have attorneys at the VARO level.

It's not going to get any less complicated as time goes by. My suggestion is that you try to get an attorney to help you reach a compromise agreement, otherwise known as a joint remand. Once the appeal reaches the Court, you leave the VA system (supposedly non-adversarial, but many of us find that to be fiction), and enter the judicial system, which is quite adversarial. You need someone in your corner who has experience in this arena.

I havent been online in a while (lost my internet service I couldnt afford it)

Im still stuggling with my case. Now my case is at the court of veteran appeals.

But you know what. when the general counsel for the otherside submitted their DOR. The paperwork that (about my mental stay in the hospital in the army 1986) they said they NEVER HAD mysterious popped up. In that paperwork clearly shows that I had a adjustment disorder and depression mood, I felt like my life was threated by the drill sgt quto "he going to kill me and out to kill me", I talk about me being homeless and that my mother said i couldnt live their with her etc.....

I dont know what to do being that my case is now at the court of veteran appeals. What should I do? should I file a new claim for depression and PTSD? I have seen a doc to this present time for depression and I take wellburitn xl 500mg and other meds to this date.

But like I said, I ask the Va if they had records of my hospital stay and to send me all the information. They said they didnt have that information but now, its mysteriously in the paperwork.

IM wondering what I can do about this. It would seem if I go in file a new claim of cue for the depression and ptsd it would hamper or prolong my back claim at the court of veteran appeals????????

Help!

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
