Legal Information


The Navy Legal Service Office provides wills and other estate planning services to authorized personnel. We can also answer questions regarding the probate of the estates. However, you will need to contact a private attorney for more complex estate planning or to represent you in court.

Power of Attorney

A Power of Attorney (POA) is a written instrument that allows you (the "principal") to authorize your agent (your "attorney-in-fact") to conduct certain business on your behalf. It is one of the strongest legal documents that you can give to another person. There are two types of POA; "general" and "special" (or limited).
