DESCRIPTION:
When faced with a domestic violence case, counsel for the victim (and for the accused) must have a thorough understanding of the rights and remedies – from rehabilitation to punishment – which are available if either of the parties is in the military.  This program covers the available civil remedies and criminal processes, as well as their impact on military service. It deals with the military protective order (used by the commander of the perpetrator), preferring court-martial charges against a military member, the Family Advocacy Program, confidentiality for the reporting individual, and restrictions on the use of personal and government weapons under the Lautenberg Amendment.  Finally, it covers Transitional Compensation for the victim and how to divide a non-existent military pension.
