Help!!!!

I was deployed with the Pennsylvania Army National Guard to Iraq for a year.

I had recieved initial notification from a CA and obviously could not respond within the required 30 days. My wife did have a power of attorney, however would not have known what to request and to be honest had other things on her mind at the time.

Do I have any legal "slack" for requesting DV outside of the 30 days from initial contact?

I also recieved an initial notification from a CA after I had returned, but did not respond within the 30 days (responded with DV 37 days after date on letter).

any help is greatly appreciated.

Soliders and Sailors act should help in this instance but you also have to be aware that a savy CA or JDB can leverage your military service to their advantage. Now my knowledge is dated having left the service in 96 but back in the day, when some of the troops got into financial difficulties and the creditor or CA found out they were dealing with military personnel, they simply filed suit to get a default judgement which was then forwarded to the chain of command. Typically the first time a soldier found out about the sitation was when the next LES came back with a 'No pay due' or involuntary alotment to cover the default judgement!

If you envoke the Soilders and Sailors act, they cannot do that until you are not deployed. That is why it is the Soliders and Sailors act.

If you envoke this act and they still "leverage" your military account they are in violiation.
