The aim of this study was to analyze the contributions of Law 12,188 / 2010 to the family farm in Alagoas, based on the Public Technical Assistance Calls and Rural Extension (ATER), launched by the Department of Technical Assistance and Rural Extension (DATER) of Department of Family Agriculture (SAF) of the Ministry of Agrarian Development (MDA) for the state between the years 2010 to 2014. With the recent policy of the Brazilian rural extension as a backdrop, we tried to understand through this exploratory study, how the implementation of the Law could improve the service offered and expand the scope of the number of beneficiaries. In Alagoas, in 2006, according to IBGE, 92% of farmers did not receive technical assistance, that is, because the state was in critical condition in compliance with this policy. However, at the end of this research, it became evident that the service through the Public Call, had reached 4% of the universe of family farming, and that the promises of the public managers which would be to reduce bureaucracy and continuity of service by the implementation of this law, had not had any affect in this state.
