This Goes Against Federal Law (38 USC 5301)(a):
Veterans' Rights Advocate, Jere Beery, Stated,"I Don't Think The American People Are
Aware That Millions Of Tax Dollars Paid By American Tax Payer's For Veteran's Disability Benefits
Are Being Diverted To Able Body Third Parties Via Divorce Court. This Is Very Wrong
And Needs To Be Stopped As Soon Humanly Possible". Beery Stated."The Wording Of
5301(a) Is Very Clear And Forbids 'attachment' Of Veterans' Benefits Under Any Legal
Process, Including Divorce Court".
"If A State/County Judge Uses A Veteran's VA Disability Benefits To Determine Ability To Pay Alimony
Or Spousal Support, That Judge Has 'attached' To That Veteran's Benefits By Calculation.
I Don't See Any Gray-Area Here", Beery Said In A Recent FBN Interview.
As A Long Time Veterans' Right Advocate, He Has Spent Hundreds Of Hours Researching
This Issue Over The Past Two Years. In Addition, He Has Written Several Articles On The
Subject Of Veterans' Benefits Protection In Many State Courts."This Issue Is A Lot Bigger
Than Just Disabled Veterans," Stated In A FBN Interview."Any Disabled American Could Fall
Victim To Having Their Disability Benefits Stripped and Diverted To A Third Party In Divorce Court.
Disability Benefits Belong Solely To The Person That Has The Disability And
Qualified For The Benefits. Not An Able Body Third Party," He Concluded.
Disabled Veterans' Benefits Are Protected By Federal Law.
In Fact, U.S. Code, Title 38, Section 5301(a), States:
"Nonassignability and Exempt Status Of Benefits Payments Of Benefits Due Or To Become Due
Under Any Law Administered By The Secretary Shall Not Be Assignable Except To The
Extent Specifically Authorized By Law, And Such Payments Made To, Or On Account Of, A
Beneficiary Shall Be Exempt From Taxation, Shall Be Exempt From The Claim Of Creditors,
And Shall Not Be Liable To Attachment, Levy, or Seizure By Or Under Any Legal or Equitable
Process Whatever, Either Before Or After Receipt By The Beneficiary".
Anyone Can View This Federal Law By Going To:
U.S. Code, Title 38, Section 5301
Or At Your Public Library Under Federal US Codes-Statutes.
State And County Judges Are Over-Stepping Their Authority And ILLEGALY Striping
Veterans Of THEIR Earned Entitlements.
Many Of Our Disabled Military Veterans Are Jailed In Contempt Of Court By Refusing To
Pay Their Able Bodied Ex's Alimony/Spousal Support And Will Continue To Do So UNTIL The
County And State Judges Read And Learn Our Federal US Codes-Statutes.
When It Concerns Our Past Military Disabled Veterans, And Our Disabled Military Men
And Women, Returning Now From Wars.....
Isn't It Time To Stand Up For Our Disabled Veterans?

Advocates For Our Disabled Vets
If You Are A Disabled Veteran Receiving Disablity Compensation From The VA (Veterans Affairs),
And You Become Divorced, Make Sure That You Know Your Rights And Make Sure That
Your Attorney Knows That Their Is A Federal Law That Protects Your Compensation.
If You Have Children That Are Of Child Support Age, Then You
Must Take Care Of Your Children And Your Disability Compensation Can Be
Used To Support Your Children, But Not To Your Ex Wife Or Husband.
