Overseas Sailor Cares for Homeless Father with Pro Bono Legal Help

August 8, 2016

A Navy servicemember’s father had been homeless. He was unable to care for himself or manage his finances due to physical disabilities and undiagnosed mental health complications. Fortunately, the servicemember had previously been able to live with, care for and support her father. However, since the sailor was the only family member available for him and she had been transferred overseas, she needed legal assistance in order handle his affairs in the future. The ABA Military Pro Bono Project quickly referred the sailor to a pro bono attorney with experience in guardianship and who was licensed in her father’s jurisdiction. The servicemember’s attorney drafted the estate planning documents that the sailor needed to make the medical and financial decisions necessary for the proper care of her father while also focusing on her military duties overseas.
