Air Force Legal Assistance website features include:

Consumer/Financial Affairs       Power of Attorney 
Deployment ReadinessReal Property
Disaster AssistanceServicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA)
Family LawTaxation
Military BenefitsWills and Estate Planning

• Legal Worksheets: Access to online questionnaires for wills, living wills, and powers of attorney. After completing the online worksheet, the website provides each client a unique “ticket number.” Data entered by clients is secure and may be accessed only after clients visit their local legal office and provide their ticket numbers to legal office personnel

While the website increases convenience for clients, everyone should note the following:
• The website cannot replace consultation with your local JAG, and Airmen should never rely solely on the website when making decisions
• Clients will not have the ability to print a legal document from the website. Clients will need to visit the legal office and provide their ticket numbers to obtain their legal documents

The website is designed for client convenience, but no one is required to use the website prior to visiting the legal office.

American Bar Association's Military Pro Bono Project
Connects active-duty military personnel to free legal assistance for civil legal issues beyond the scope of services provided by a military legal assistance office. The Project accepts case referrals for limited civil-law matters on behalf of income-eligible servicemembers from military legal assistance offices worldwide, and then places these cases with volunteer pro bono attorneys anywhere in the United States the legal representation is needed. Please see the website for details. If you believe you meet Project financial guidelines, that you have a significant, meritorious legal issue affecting your service readiness, and that a referral to a civilian attorney is the only remaining way to resolve the problem, contact your legal assistance office to meet with a legal services attorney who can assess your case for a referral to the Military Pro Bono Project. At Fairchild AFB, the Legal Office phone number is 509-247-2838
