DOD ID Numbers Required for Legal Assistance
Due to a recent system change, DOD ID numbers are now required for all legal assistance appointments. For current military members, this number is located on your CAC. If dependents wish to receive legal services, they will need their sponsor's DOD ID number to be assisted.
Retirees may retrieve their DOD ID number at https: //milconnect-pki.dmdc.osd.mil/milconnect/ (if they do not know it). Spouses of retirees wishing to receive legal services must also have their sponsor's DOD ID number in order to receive legal assistance.
Our primary goal and first priority is to ensure members and their families are prepared for deployment. The legal office works with deploying members to ensure their legal readiness. This includes the preparation of wills, advance medical directives (living will and medical power of attorney), general/special powers of attorney, and assisting in arrangement to help support service members and their families. For legal resources, issues, and questions, please call our office or refer to the Air Force Legal Assistance website at: https://aflegalassistance.law.af.mil.

Legal Assistance is by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, call 321-494-7357 during the posted hours of operation Monday – Friday.
Wills and/or advanced medical directives are also by appointment only. Please call for available dates and times of appointments. When scheduling a Will appointment, clients must provide the legal office with their will worksheet ticket number. Clients can obtain a ticket number by completing a Legal Worksheet at the Air Force Legal Assistance website at: https://aflegalassistance.law.af.mil. We ask all clients to follow the instructions completely and thoroughly answer each question. This will help avoid delays on the day of your appointment.

Once the POA worksheet is complete, clients should make note of the generated ticket number for the document, and provide it to the legal professional at the time of their visit.
