Airmen Cannot Ignore Italian Traffic Tickets

The Aviano Legal Office can assist you in either paying or contesting your ticket within the required time frame. After being issued a ticket, contact the Aviano Legal Office and provide your name, number, and time frame. The Aviano Legal Office will do its best to accommodate you and your deadline. Please read below for more detailed information on traffic tickets.
Are you legally prepared for deployment?
The operations tempo in USAFE is high. If you do not have your legal affairs in order, now is a good time to do so. Don't wait until the last minute. The 31st FW/JA is here to help make this a less stressful time and an easy transition as you deploy. Please click on the link for deployers, fill out POAs for single or married deployers, bring to the legal office for a notary, and you will be ready to hit the ground running!
Almost all Airmen should have a will, which allows them to direct disposition of property, name guardians for minor children, and appoint individuals to handle their estates. Many Airmen choose to have living wills and durable Powers of Attorney for Health Care, which permit them to express their desires and appoint family members to make medical decisions if they become incapacitated. Special Powers of Attorney allow Airmen to appoint agents to conduct various transactions on their behalf in their absence. Durable Special Powers of Attorney, on the other hand, remain in effect even if the member becomes incapacitated. This is distinguished from Springing Special Powers of Attorney which only become in effect upon the member's incapacitation. If you think you need any of these documents, a legal assistance attorney will advise you on your options.
