A legal assistance appointment is a dedicated, personal consultation with an attorney. This service is provided BY APPOINTMENT ONLY and is available to active duty service members and their dependents, state-side hire civilian employees stationed overseas, retirees, and activated reservists.
Generally, legal assistance appointments are appropriate for the following issues: family law (divorce, paternity, child support, child custody, etc...); estate law and planning (wills, trusts, etc...); consumer law, creditor/debtor issues; tort law; immigration law; military benefits; deployment readiness (health care powers of attorney and durable springing powers of attorney). Additionally, for legal assistance matters that fall under Italian jurisdiction (such as a lawsuit due to an off-base traffic accident), please call to make an appointment with a local national attorney. This consultation is at the RLSO Office, but is by appointment only and depends on the availability of the Italian attorney.
