Veteran and Military Issues

If you are a member of the military or a veteran and are involved in a court case, you may have certain rights and protections. To let the court know you are or were in the armed services or reserves, you can use the form Notification of Military Status (Form MIL-100). This form can also be used by someone on behalf of a member of the military or a veteran.
