HALT THE ASSAULT ON DISABLED VETERAN COMPENSATION!

    1. Petition by

      Michael McKown

Veterans Disability Compensation is designed to enable disabled veterans to pay for basic day-to-day living expenses. U.S. Code Title 38, Section 5301 pretects this compensation from being attached in any form i.e. it is protected as the exclusive property of the wounded veteran. Family Law attorneys veiw VA disabiliy payments as JOINT PROPERTY in the case of divorce between the disabled veteran and their soon-to-be ex-spouse. State judges, presiding over said divorce, routinely allow this violation of FEDERAL STATUTES in their courts, thus depriving the permanently disabled veteran of a significant portion of the compensation designed to provide for his/her basic needs.

      IL County Court order to me to pay Child Support out of my Disability Compensation. The children receive adequate support.IL Child Support tried to garnish my Disability Comp from the Veteran's Affair but they wouldnt allow it. So IL child support notified SS. My SS checks have been garnished for quite some time. They are garnishing more than one half of my SS benefits.

      And they wonder why veterans are homeless? Lawyers are ruthless and only care about getting your money. It disgust me that Judges can not follow Federal Law. I hope this petition goes viral!

      Veterans Disability Compensation is designed to enable disabled veterans to pay for basic day-to-day living expenses.This compensation is for the future loss of income for the sole benefit of the disabled veteran ONLY. Title 38 section 5301 was initiated to protect disabiltiy pay as defined in the Federal Statutes. Scrupulous attorneys and judges have found a "cash cow" by circumventing the federal code and lining their personal pockets with "blood, sweat and tears" money earned by the "disabled veteran". As a taxpayer and supporter of the "troops", everyone needs to join this fight to stop the discrimination against "disabled veterans" by unethical judges and attorneys in our local state courts.
