Notice of Docketing

November 2, 2023
Question

I've started my appeal at The U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC) and just received a notice that I don't understand. What is a “Notice of Docketing” and what do I need to do next?

Answer

The notice of docketing is the Court's way of letting you know they got your appeal. Anything marked for the “Appellant” (that's you) is something you need to review carefully and act on. Any items marked for the “Appellee” (that's the VA) are things the VA must complete.
