- Location: Duval County
- Organization: ABA Military Pro Bono Project (Florida)
- Case Number: 22619
A Navy servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a bankruptcy case. The Sailor has a large amount of debt and has filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The government has filed a motion to dismiss the bankruptcy claiming that the Sailor does not meet the eligibility requirements due to her income. The tax returns considered are from an inflated income after she was deployed last year, and only a small portion of the debt is considered. The servicemember would like assistance to pursue the bankruptcy.
