- Legal Counseling from an attorney is available by appointment. Appointments are generally scheduled within a month, but attorneys can see emergencies on a priority basis.
- Attorneys advise individuals in many areas of law, to include marriage, divorce, adoption, military family support, consumer law, real estate, landlord tenant, review of legal documents, military administrative actions, and taxes. Please remember to bring all of the documentation that is relevant to your issue in order to assist you better. Also, please note that attorneys are prohibited from providing legal advice over the telephone.
- With limited exceptions, everything discussed with an attorney will be confidential and not disclosed to anyone outside the Legal Assistance Office without your consent. Legal assistance attorneys are prohibited from representing individuals in court; however, if necessary, we can provide a list of attorneys and agencies that may be able to offer you further assistance.
General guidance on notarizations
- DO NOT sign or make any changes to any document that you desire to have notarized UNTIL you are in the presence of the Notary Public. A Notary cannot notarize a blank document.
- Documents cannot be notarized unless the individual whose signature is to be notarized appears in person before the Notary Public.
- A notary CANNOT make certified copies of any city, state, or federal document. Certified copies of any document must be procured from the office that issued the original document.
