Quite some time ago, 2-3 years, I elected to have a video conference hearing on an appeal for depressive disorder secondary to chronic shoulder pain. My claim is at the Clevelan RO. What is a reasonable time frame to wait for a hearing? Am I as a Gulf War 1 vet being put on the back burner because of current returning veterans? I am frustrated because I cant find out anything about my claim other than it is currently under review. Would the fact that I hired an attorney cause my claim to be delayed. I am afraid to contact a congressman because I am afraid it would further delay my appeal. This process isexhausting. The worst part of it is the lack of meaningful communication.

Once you have an attorney you really have to let go and let the attorney handle everything. This does not preclude checking on how claim is progressing.

Good Luck

Contact your lawyer. He is doing your claim. He should have some answers. You could call about your claim, but don't do anything besides that because you will be stepping on your lawyer's toes and he won't like that. 2-3 years is a long time for a hearing!

bern,
If you requested a video conference hearing, this sounds more like your appeal
is at the BVA level.
Is this correct ?
If the answer is yes, then you are in the "normal" time of waiting.

The funny thing is that I assumed that my claim was at the BVA. However, when I called the BVA they informed me that my claim file is at the RO being "reviewed". I can't seem to get a straight answer from anyone at the VA. Imagine that!

When the BVA remands a decision it then goes back to the AMC and then to the Regional Office.
