Customer Question

Is a Military Protective Order sign by a person other than the commanding officer valid?
JA: OK. The Military Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: no
JA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Military Lawyer can help you best. Please give me a bit more information, so we can help you best.
Customer: A military protective order was signed by direction, not signed by the commanding officer. I can find nothing that authorizes a military commander to delegate by direction authority for the signing of a military protection order. Incident stated in a location on the installation where a girlfriend, they don't live together, was physically assaulted by military, arrested by civilian law enforcement. Commander issued a military protection order but order was not signed by commanding officer.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Military Lawyer should know?
Customer: no
