If you are a dependent who requires legal assistance, you should know that this is one of the many benefits that is provided by the military when you have a spouse or parent serving. The military is going to offer you free legal assistance, if you need to write your will, you need to sign a lease, or need power of attorney. But military lawyers can also help you with Family Matters.

Hiring a military family lawyer means you are most likely hiring a Judge Advocate General or a JAG. Judge Advocate Generals are going to be able to help with legal and non-legal matters, such as purchasing a car, renting an apartment, buying a home in taxes or doing something that requires a lot more legal knowledge.

Judge Advocate General’s are lawyers who have graduated from an accredited law school and have their license to practice law by the highest court of state or by a federal judge. Judge Advocates are assigned to assist individuals with legal problems, and are also known as legal assistance lawyers. 

The military services offer limited legal I just sent to guard and Reserve members, especially when they are inactive. Guard and Reserve members of the military are going to be able to prepare legal documents such as wills and Powers of Attorney in case they are called to action. Each military service has specific regulations that are going to affect the extent of legal assistance they provide.

Your military family lawyer is going to be able to help you understand what you’re provided legal assistance is based on whatever branch of the military you are involved with.
