    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Hello everyone I am going through a bitter divorce soon to be x spouse tried to use PTSD to get custody of my kids and failed. I have a separation agreement she is contesting using a Reserve JAG lawyer / with civ practice against me. Conflict of interest ? Can the out come of a forensic custody evaluation be used to overturn my VA compensation?

I dont know what a forensic custody evaluation means but this matter would not "overturn" your PTSD evaluation-as it seems it is a civil matter-

But- this BVA case shows what the VA could do- under the Legal Analysis-

there could be an appointment made-to the ex spouse for the children or maybe for her too.

I found this information on forensic custody evaluations- -

it could affect the custody matter:

Have you already been awarded custody and/or visitations?

Do you have a lawyer?

I would think a forensic evaluation has to be done regarding all parties involved.

This evaluation has nothing to do with your compensation from the VA. You have no reason to contact the VA other than to take her off as your dependent once the divorce is final. If she sends it into the VA it is not suppose to be considered, as it is third party information. Good Luck. Good to see a father fighting for his childern. You have my prayers.

My situation is complex in that I am 100% VA SC & (CRSC) and TDRL status from the service. In Fact I am under TDRL medical review at the same time dealing with a divorce. The TDRL review is being done at my VA so based on their findings can that throw my VA comp in review? I had such a horror show getting my benefits and my spouse calculated so that the divorce would be along the same time as my TRDRL review. Yes I have a lawyer and yes I have temp custody of my children but most lawyers don't know about military issues. I am sure like most of us without the medications and medical support from the VA our conditions would get worse or unable to function. The TDRL exam will show some inprovements based on medcations and adapting. But in no way erase the damage sustained.

Does anyone recommend getting medical and psychological services away from the VA?

Does the TDRL medical exam have anything to do with the VA SC COMP?

Thank you all for your kind words, information and support.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
