Immigration Law– based on availability and expertise.

Wills – Some single Soldiers with no property or children may not need a will. Nevertheless, everyone's situation is fact-specific, and Soldiers with questions should make an appointment. TSP payouts are not paid through according to a will, but to the beneficiary on file with the TSP. Similarly, insurance and SGLI benefits are separate from a will and go to whomever is designated as the beneficiary on the SGLI form. As a result, Soldiers must ensure beneficiaries are always updated.

Translations – The Legal Assistance office does not offer translation services except for Schützen-Schnur Documents (Marksman Badges). We do however have a list of certified translators and interpreters in the Ansbach area. The list is available on the bottom right of this web page.

Tax Assistance – The Tax Assistance Office is generally open from the end of January through April each year. The tax office provides assistance in preparing state and federal tax returns and offers free electronic filing.

Claims – The Claims Office can assist with a variety of claims issues, including those arising from HHG and POV shipments. Remember, if you did not provide notice of loss or damage at delivery, ensure you provide notice of loss or damage online at the link below within 75 days from the date of HHG delivery, or bring in the Notice of Loss or Damage AFTER Delivery form to our Military Claims Office within 70 days from the date of HHG delivery. IMPORTANT: file your claim within 9 months from the date of delivery at www.move.mil.

Power of Attorney and Notarization – We prepare and notarize general and special powers of attorney. These are used to grant some power you possess to another person, such as the power to receive your household goods, or to get medical treatment for your child. Walk-ins are available for powers of attorney (POA) and notary services. However, if you have a significant number of documents requiring notarization, such as closing documents, please contact us ahead of time to ensure your matter is expeditiously handled, and place markers on each page requiring notarization. For notarization services, do NOT sign the document until you are in the presence of the notary.

Trial Defense Services – Trial Defense Services (TDS) provides assistance to soldiers on adverse UCMJ actions relating to Article 15 counseling, courts-martial, chapters, etc. Soldiers who are found to be in conflict of interest by the Ansbach TDS attorney will be referred to another TDS location. Please go to our directory listing for Trial Defense Services.

Administrative Law – The primary focus for Administrative Law is to interpret laws and regulations for the command and agencies on post. Commanders or agencies needing more information should contact 09802-83-3801 or DSN 467-3801.

Military Justice – The primary focus for Military Justice or “Criminal Law” is to support and advise the commander. Commanders and first sergeants should ensure that a responsible NCO coordinates with the Military Justice section for adverse actions and UCMJ actions. Commanders should call 09802-83-2475 or DSN 467-2475.
