Most of us know how unsettling legal issues can be. Legal problems contribute to anxiety, worry, and distractions from the important things in life, such as Family, job performance, and financial stability.
The North Carolina National Guard Legal Assistance Program, co-sponsored by Family Programs and the Office of the Staff Judge Advocate, offers a wide variety of legal services that we make available to all our eligible Service Members, retirees, and their dependents. Our mission is to provide you with the highest-quality legal services possible.
For your convenience we have complied an informational brochure outlining legal assitance and Family Programs personnel. Download here LegalAssistance-All Locations July 2014.pdfLegal Assistance Flyer.pdf 
The website Stateside Legal,, offers interactive legal forms at not cost for Servicemembers, Veterans and their Families. This is not a resource developed by Family Programs therefore, we are not liable for the legal documents created from the site.
