Legal Assistance Services – Some of the services we provide are:
Family Law: If you and your spouse are having marital difficulties and need legal advice, a legal assistance attorney can advise you concerning the legal and practical implications of an annulment, paternity test, legal separation, divorce, support and child custody. Additionally, if the matter is uncontested (that is, if you and your spouse are in total agreement about how to resolve the situation), assistance may be provided to prepare the necessary pro se documents.
Estate Planning: Legal assistance will be provided on wills, testamentary trusts for the benefit of minors, guardianships and the designation of beneficiaries under life insurance policies. If you want to ensure your worldly possessions go to the individuals you have chosen, a will may be the solution. A will is a legal document which specifies how you want your property distributed after your death and may also include other matters such as appointment of your child's guardian. A legal assistance attorney may also provide an advance medical directive or a living will which relates to the use of extraordinary life-sustaining measures if you become seriously ill.
Powers of Attorney: If you would like to appoint another person to act on your behalf, a power of attorney may help. A legal assistance attorney will advise you that a power of attorney may be drafted to authorize a person to act on your behalf in most of your affairs through a general power of attorney, or only in specific situations such as obtaining emergency medical care for your children or registering your car through a limited or special power of attorney. Your legal assistance attorney will explain the differences, advising which type would best meet your needs, and prepare an appropriate power of attorney.
Notary public: Legal assistance attorneys are empowered under federal law to act as a notary without the fee most public notaries charge.
Civil courts: A legal assistance attorney can advise you as to your protection under the Service Members Civil Relief Act. This act provides certain protections to active-duty members who have been sued in a civil court (as distinguished from a criminal proceeding) and who, because of their military duties, cannot defend themselves from the lawsuit.
