Stateside Legal: Legal help for military members, veterans and their families
Stateside Legal is a website for members of the military, veterans, their families and advocates. The goal of the site is to provide assistance in finding information to:
- access benefits
- find free legal help, and
- better understand legal issues
Many websites provide information for military households or veterans. The goal here is to index the best legal information available in one easy-to-use site. the site also includes new interactive forms, videos, and legal analysis.
The Legal Services Corporation, www.lsc.gov provided the initial funding for this site.
Two primary partnering organizations have worked together to create the Stateside Legal website. These organizations are Pine Tree Legal Assistance of Maine and the Arkansas Legal Services Partnership. In addition, the website has received help from many volunteers, including private attorneys, members of the Judge Advocate General [JAG] Corps, civilian Legal Assistance Attorneys, and veteran service officers.
