    Am I eligible to join the coast guard with a misdemeanor charge of "Criminal Contempt II" that happened 3 years ago?
    I also have many great qualifications including a bachelors of science with a 3.5 GPA

    Depends on what the facts of the case are. If it's something disqualifying, your recruiter *may* be able to apply for a waiver, if they choose to do so. They're not required to. Remember, the CG gets more applications than they have room for, so they can afford to be picky. It may also turn out that this charge is non waiverable, in which case you're out of luck.

    Im not 100% sure, it was stemmed from an argument, nonetheless the police were called in and thats what I was charged with, Im getting my deposition tomorrow, so I should know more facts on the matter. Would it make much of a difference if it was or wasn't? I wasn't charged with DV

    I am very sure I can score extremely high on the ASVAB test and I have a good recruiter in mind that can help me get a waiver, but I need to know more information before I waist both of our time.

    So if I understand, you at some point were served with a restraining order, validly issued by a judge. You then did something that violated a condition of that order, causing police to be called and you to be arrested. If the order was issued as the result of a domestic incident, and you violated it, that will be viewed far more seriously than if you violated an order issued because you and a neighbor had an issue. Frankly, you could achieve a perfect ASVAB score and that won't eclipse the fact that you violated a TRO. As for the waiver, the recruiter can only request it on your behalf. It's up to CG Recruiting Command as to whether or not it's granted.

    You're not 100% sure? You need to be. Getting into the cg is like any other job. You have to list the details on things like this. If you're wrong, ignorance won't save you. I recommend you find out but yes, DV makes a difference.

    I just got the deposition, Im sad to say its from DV since there was a menacing charge but it was dropped and covered in the Criminal Contempt II, is it still possible to get a waiver from a misdemeanor in CCII stemmed from DV.
    I really hope that my chances of getting in are none, the case happened when I was 20 and still young and dumb, Im going on 25 now and would like to be in service for the CG. Thanks for all the info you guys are giving me, much appreciated.

    That is going to be very difficult to get past. 20 years old or 40, domestic violence is an issue. You will be in a high stress job, possibly semi-isolated, whose to say you won't snap on the next person and commit the same crime. Also, you were told by a court of law do not go near so and so and near so and so you went. That shows a blatant disregard for a lawful order. You are facing an uphill battle at best. I wish you the best of luck but having lived next door to a wife abuser, on Kodiak Island, in Coast Guard housing, and hearing her screams while he was punching her... I really hope the CG considers what it might be getting into. And yes, for the record, I called base security each and every night. And each and every night, she told security I was wrong, nothing happened. Even with her black eye, broken arm, bruised body......... 30 years ago, she said go away and away the police (base security) went. I don't care what your age, I can't find a reason for the CG to not make you jump through every hoop possible and still truly consider you not a good candidate.

    well ur neighbor went to all extremes. My OOP was broken because we got back together, I had forgot about the OOP and brushed it off my shoulders; but my ex would call the police on anything and everything if it did not go her way as she did when we had our next argument which alot of couples have. DV can also result from 2 brothers fighting which is not so uncommon. I rly wish there was a better way to determine who is fit for duty and who isnt. I will try for the coast guard and am willing to jump trough every hoop but if worst comes to worst is there any other branch that I am able to join with CCII misnomer stemming from DV. Possibly the army but Id firstly consider the Navy.

    I feel like empty threats charged as menesing and making it DV is quite fair especially when it makes it close to impossible to join the CG especially when the charge was dropped and CCII was the only real conviction. It makes it seem like CCII and DV are both the same thing.

    There's nothing wrong with the way we determine who is fit to join the CG. People like you are the ones who think we need a better way, because you want the rules changed to suit your needs. YOU are the one who screwed up, not the CG, so don't come in here telling a bunch of Coasties that there needs to be a better way to determine who should be allowed to join. As someone else said, we have many, many more applicants than we have slots, so we can choose to be pick only the best.

    A high ASVAB score and a bachelors degree don't really set you apart from any other applicant, for either enlisted of officer programs.

    Any hint of a domestic violence incident on your record, however, does set you apart from most other applicants, but not in a good way.

    You're probably better off not wasting your time or a recruiter's time.
