Legal Services

The office of the Staff Judge Advocate, at 17801 Warren Shingle Road, provides several important services for newcomers to Beale, including legal assistance (wills and powers of attorney, notary services and legal advice), assistance in filing claims for loss or damage to personal property (household goods claims), and state and federal income tax preparation.

LEGAL ASSISTANCE

The office provides legal assistance to active-duty personnel, their dependents and retirees. Licensed attorneys are available for advice and consultation on personal civil legal matters (landlord-tenant issues, divorce, custody, consumer issues, leases, residency and many other issues). The legal office also offers assistance in the preparation of legal documents and instruments such as wills, bills of sale and powers of attorney. In addition, there are helpful preventive law brochures to provide guidance on domestic relations, wills, consumer law and other legal topics.

Walk-in legal assistance is available noon to 2 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, 1 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, 10 a.m. to noon Thursday and 11 a.m. to noon Friday. Copies of the various brochures can be obtained by visiting the legal office. Notary services are offered 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

CLAIMS

Claims for lost or damaged household goods, privately owned vehicles shipped at government expense and theft or vandalism of private property on the installation may be filed with the claims office by calling 530-634-3294/3295. The claims office conducts a claims briefing at 10 a.m. Thursday. Forms and instructions necessary for filing a claim will be provided at the briefing.

Two important things to keep in mind for household goods claims: noting the damage on the DD Form 1840/1840R (pink forms) and turning in the DD Form 1840/1840R to the legal office within 70 days of delivery.

First, it is important to note the damages or loss on the DD Form 1840 at the time of delivery and unpacking. If loss or damage is discovered at a later date, annotate the specified damage on the reverse side of the DD Form 1840 (DD Form 1840R) and bring all copies of the DD Form 1840 and 1840R to the claims office within 70 days from the date of delivery.

Failure to note damage or loss or to deliver the forms within 70 days from the date of delivery may have adverse effects on your claim. Although claimants have two years from the date of delivery to file a claim for loss or damage, it is not recommended to wait until the statute of limitations are about to expire to file a claim.

INCOME TAX PREPARATION

The tax center, at 6008 B St., provides free state and federal tax return preparation and filing. This service is normally offered January through April 15 but is expanded for returning deploying members and their families. For more information, contact the tax center at 530-634-5536.

RELOCATION ASSISTANCE

The Relocation Assistance program educates Airmen and their families to help alleviate some of the stress associated with a PCS move. Personal consultation and workshops such as Smooth Move help members limit the amount of out-of-pocket expenditures incurred during a PCS move.
