- Case Number: 22241
A Navy servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with an adoption. The servicemember’s ex-wife feels she can no longer care for her child, and the servicemember -- who has always cared for the child as his own -- wishes to adopt him. The child has mental health issues, and the servicemember wants the child to be covered by his military insurance under TRICARE. The biological mother and father (who has been absent since the child’s birth) will not contest the adoption.
