Appealing Unfavorable Discharges And Injustices
A mistake, injustice or a discharge with conditions that are not honorable on your record can seriously impact your:
- Disability and VA benefits
- Employment opportunities
- Retirement and health care benefits
It can also have negative effects on your reputation. For example, a bad conduct discharge could prevent you from obtaining a government position. You can appeal your record for a discharge upgrade. You can also appeal to correct mistakes, such as being classified as a detainee instead of a prisoner of war.
We will help you navigate the records appeals process, all the way from filing an appeal to taking your case before the Board of Correction for Military Records. It is important to note that the appeals process is complex, and it is often difficult to amend military records. It requires careful strategy and skill to obtain the necessary evidence to correct your record, while also protecting your rights.
That is why it is crucial to work with a military lawyer who will fight for you. The consequences of unfavorable discharges and errors on your record are significant, and you have the ability to challenge them. We can help safeguard your best interests and pursue the best possible outcome.
