WE ARE HERE FOR YOU!
There may be no such thing as a free lunch (unless you're lucky enough to eat at the dining facility), but there is free legal assistance! Through the legal assistance program, our office strives to support both individual Airmen and the mission. We do this in a variety of ways by providing wills, living wills, powers of attorneys and notaries. In addition, we offer advice on various legal topics such as domestic relations, consumer affairs and landlord-tenant issues.
One of our most popular programs is our wills service. A will is a legal document that states who you would like your money, real estate, and personal belongings to go to upon your death. In addition, wills allow you to appoint a guardian to care for your minor children in the event of your death. Private attorneys typically charge around $300 to create a will. Here at the legal office, we create a will for Airmen and their dependents for free! An appointment typically takes between 30 minutes to an hour and you'll leave our office with a fully-executed will.
Our office provides free legal advice to those eligible for legal assistance. We offer advice on a multitude of topics, including divorce, child custody, landlord-tenant issues and the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act.
The Air Force's legal assistance website is located at https://aflegalassistance.law.af.mil. You can find general information and sample forms on the website covering a wide range of useful legal topics including protections under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, taxation, immigration, marriage and divorce.
