Robert Capovilla and Mickey Williams discuss the basic information that you need to know if you are notified of separation for misconduct. Mickey educates the listeners on who is and who isn’t entitled to a bring their case before a separation board and what types of allegations we typically see at separation boards. Remember, unlike a courts-martial, the burden of proof at a separation board is merely the preponderance of the evidence. This means the government’s burden is lower, which makes their jobs easier. Call us today if you have any questions about the military separation process.
We all know the saying, “proof beyond a reasonable doubt.” We have heard it in movies, on TV shows, and in popular culture. But what does it actually mean? In this video Mickey and Robert discuss what beyond a reasonable means and how it’s important in your case. They also discuss the definition of preponderance of the evidence, which is the burden of proof that is applied during an administrative separation board. If you have questions about the burden of proof or if you are facing a courts-martial, call us today. We can help.
