If you are presented with a GOMOR (sometimes “GOMAR”) you have a small window of time to respond. You or your attorney will need to review the packet of evidence/information that the GOMOR is based on. Your opportunity to respond is done in writing through a “rebuttal”, also known as response matters. There is no board or other opportunity to present a face-to-face request for mercy. The Rebuttal is critical, and we recommend that you seek the advice of qualified legal counsel. Unfortunately, TDS generally does not provide counsel to assist with a GOMOR. On occasion base legal offices will review something (for grammar and typos) that the member writes, but these offices set low priority and will not write the response for the member. Base legal offices also will not solicit, collect, or edit memoranda of support or character letters to accompany rebuttal matters. For more on how to rebuttal a GOMOR, please see this post.
