Protecting the Motherland is an honorable mission and duty of a citizen. At the same time, the legislation provides that there are a number of clearly defined grounds for obtaining a deferment from mobilization during martial law. The team of the “Prikhodko&Partners” law office regularly works with such client requests.
Postponement of conscription in wartime is a topic around which many myths circulate in the information space. At the same time, even a person’s awareness of their rights does not always help if a situation arises when TCC officials do not take into account obvious facts that should stand in the way of mobilization. Let’s talk in more detail about the reasons for the postponement, as well as what we can do to help.
Postponement of mobilization in wartime: grounds
Therefore, the following circumstances should be noted among the key reasons:
- disability of I-II groups in parents (these can be both own parents and parents of the wife);
- disability of the I-III groups in the wife;
- having 3 or more dependent children under the age of 18;
- disability of the conscript himself;
- independent upbringing and maintenance of a child up to 18 years of age.
In addition, the grounds include the situation when one of the person’s close relatives died or went missing during the anti-terrorist operation/anti-terrorist operation or during a full-scale war. It is also not possible to mobilize a person who is raising a minor child while the other spouse is serving in the army. The explanation here is obvious, because someone has to fulfill parental duties so that the child is not left without care.
It is worth noting that customers often have questions about some items. For example, a common question concerns a situation where a father supports 3 minor children, but does not live with them because he is divorced from their mother. Or – when it comes to keeping children from different marriages. We hasten to dispel all the myths surrounding this topic: the mentioned reason applies equally when the father lives and does not live with the children, since the legal norm is about maintenance, not cohabitation. Therefore, if a person does not have alimony debts, he can claim to use this reason for deferment as long as at least three children are minors.
One of the fairly common reasons already mentioned is postponement of mobilization due to health. At the same time, it is not always easy to use, because in many situations a person is faced with the fact that the representatives of the MMC ignore his real diagnoses and consider him suitable for service with clear contraindications. In such a case, the help of professional lawyers may be needed, who will provide legal support for the procedure of contesting the conclusion of the MMC.
Postponement of conscription for military service during mobilization: required documents
When it comes to deferment, we can help with its processing. First of all, you need to correctly make a statement and indicate the existing reason in it (one or more, which also sometimes happens). Also, a very significant step is the collection of a package of documents, which are provided for submission to the TCC. This can be done both physically and by mail.
Our clients often ask about what documents are required. At the same time, it is one of the most common queries in search engines when it comes to postponement of mobilization. But there are no simple solutions here, and each reason involves a rather large package of documents. We can say that there is such an unspoken rule – the more of them, the better. The presence of a large number of documents to confirm what is said in the application is always a plus. Therefore, it is worth preparing as thoroughly as possible, given the well-known meticulousness of TCC representatives in this matter.
