Legal assistance is available to you and your family. Below, you’ll find information about claims and installation specific programs and services. If you have questions, reach out to the legal assistance program at your installation.
The services available to soldiers, their families and retirees fall into two broad categories – legal assistance and claims.
The legal assistance office provides legal advice on a wide variety of legal issues. These include estate planning, wills, powers of attorneys, adoption, divorce, child support, child custody, immigration and naturalization, security clearance revocations and suspension, consumer law, credit and indebtedness, probating estates, and assistance to the Families of Fallen Soldiers and Wounded Soldiers charity. A complete list of services may be found in Army Regulation AR 27-3. The legal assistance office does not provide advice on military justice issues, employer-employee issues and only very limited advice on bankruptcy. Some issues can be handled on a walk-in basis such as power of attorney, ad valorem tax forms and notarizations. Other issues are taken by appointment only which include wills and activities requiring an attorney.
The claims office receives claims against the government for damage to household goods during moves and other claims soldiers and family members may have against the government. The main office is located in Building 1211. If you have lost or damaged items from your move, take form DD 1840 (joint statement of loss or damage at delivery), that was received upon delivery of household goods, to the claims office and they in return will give you a packet to fill out and directions on how to fill the packet out correctly to file a claim.
