An Army servicemember stationed in another state seeks pro bono assistance to obtain guardianship over her young sibling due to abuse and neglect. Her brother resides with a relative. The relative fails to provide basic needed care. The soldier has been paying for her sibling’s basic needs. The soldier would be able to provide stable housing and medical insurance. The relative is receiving social security benefits on behalf of the child, so the relative would contest guardianship.
