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.
