Transfer to another military unit is a fairly popular request between military personnel. It happens that there are reasons for translation, but the reasons themselves become insufficient to use them. Somewhere it’s bureaucracy, and somewhere it’s the human factor. Whatever the reason, such complications create obstacles to the exercise of military rights. Let’s talk about this topic in more detail, and also about how help from our specialists can be relevant. The Prikhodko&Partners Law Office specializes in requests for military law, since this area is one of those areas that are key to our practice focus.
What is needed to transfer to another military unit?
To transfer to another part, you must:
- Base. We may be talking about health status, work necessity, family circumstances, or carrying out organizational measures provided for by law.
- Good will of the commander. We are talking about the commander to whom, as of today, the military man is subordinate. Sometimes the commander may hesitate, so it would be appropriate for you to interact with him through your authorized legal representative – a lawyer representing your interests.
- Attitude from the unit where the military man would like to continue serving. There must be a vacant position in such a unit for which a serviceman will be hired. So, mere desire or the presence of a reason for transfer will not be enough – objective circumstances should also contribute to this.
Only in those cases where there is a complex of the listed factors can we talk about real opportunities for translation.
What else should you know about the required documents?
When transferring to another unit, an unspoken rule applies – the more documents, the better. For example, you can add recommendations and certification conclusions. Petitions from those commanders who are ready to accept you in the new unit will also be useful. These petitions will become additional arguments in your favor.
As for other documents, their list depends on the basis for which you are transferring. Let’s take health status, for example. The conclusion of the Military Medical Commission becomes an important document, on the basis of which it is really possible to confirm that you need service in another part (for example, an area with a different climate or territorial proximity to the necessary medical institutions). When you need to draw up a report for the Military Medical Commission, and then a report for translation, it would be better to use competent legal support. This allows you to resolve the issue without unnecessary effort, doing everything efficiently and quickly to the extent possible.
Confirmation of family circumstances requires certain documentation, the list of which may differ from the nature of the circumstances themselves.
What complicates the transfer procedure to another unit?
We have already mentioned the possible influence of the human factor, but this is far from the only reason why the translation may be delayed. The procedure itself is quite complicated and multi-stage in the legal sense. For example, when a military man wants to be transferred to another formation, operational command or unit, there must be orders from officials who carry out the function of leading these formations. But first you need to take the appropriate attitude, and our team will help with this.
