VLV can assist with the following matters:
VA DISABILITY CLAIMS: we have volunteer attorneys working with us that are accredited by the VA to officially represent veterans with their disability claims. They can prepare initial claims, submit paperwork, request documents and speak with VA representatives on behalf of applicants. WE ENCOURAGE RANGERS THAT BELIEVE THEY ARE OR MAY BE ENTITLED TO VA DISABILITY BENEFITS TO CONTACT US. We will help you prepare the claim and avoid errors that might delay processing. Rangers who have already received a disability rating that might be lower than what he is entitled to can appeal the decision and we can connect them with lawyers to assist with that step as well.
CONSUMER DEBT MATTERS – if you are being sued in court by a creditor or are receiving letters and/or phone calls from creditors, collection agencies or attorneys about outstanding credit card, auto loan or other consumer debts we might be able to connect you with pro bono attorneys in your area that can assist you. It is important to your financial security to address these matters before a judgment is entered against you.
There are many consumer debt defense programs around the nation that assist veterans and service members and we can help you find the right one and put you in touch with them.
CHILD SUPPORT MODIFICATIONS – if you are paying child support and you are having trouble keeping up with the payments due to a change in circumstances YOU MIGHT BE ENTITLED TO A REDUCTION IN THOSE PAYMENTS. Different states have different rules but each of them has a process to help make payments manageable for a non-custodial parent having financial difficulty. The consequences of failing to timely meet child support obligations can be severe and can include loss of driver’s license, passport and even jail time. Many states have programs sponsored by courts, social service agencies and non-profit organizations to help non-custodial parents with the process. We will help you learn what assistance is available to you.
OTHER CIVIL LEGAL MATTERS – we can access networks of pro bono attorneys that specialize in other areas of law. If you are facing legal matters in areas of law not mentioned above we might be able to locate a lawyer to assist you. Please inquire with us.
