Episode 114: CAVC Process and Timeline

The Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, or the CAVC, is a federal court with jurisdiction over decisions made by the Board of Veterans’ Appeals. The CAVC determines whether the BVA had the facts and law correct when it denied a claimant’s appeal. To do so, the CAVC uses case files, written arguments (briefs) from both parties, and sometimes oral arguments. On this episode of Veterans Legal Lowdown, the CCK team is reviewing the entire CAVC process and timeline. We also discuss how much a CAVC appeal costs, the benefits of hiring an attorney, and how to appeal an unfavorable CAVC decision.
