Another Success Story from the Military Pro Bono Project
An Air Force servicemember’s child resides with her, but her child stayed with a relative for less than a month while the servicemember was at training. The servicemember provided the relative with money to take care of the child for the short period. After the servicemember picked her child up from her relative, the relative filed for child support and welfare benefits for the child, falsely claiming the child as a dependant. The Military Pro Bono Project located a volunteer attorney who was able to clear up this matter—the fraud by the relative that involved the servicemember’s child—for the servicemember and her child.
