Bell County, TX: Soldier seeks pro bono help to determine paternity and potentially establish custody and child support
Tuesday, June 23, 2020
- Location: Bell County
- Organization: ABA Military Pro Bono Project (Texas)
- Case Number: 22700
An Army servicemember seeks pro bono help with a paternity matter. The Soldier has been told by his ex-wife that he is the father of her child. He has made various attempts to be involved in the child’s life, and would like to provide support and benefits to the child, but the mother will not allow him to do so. The Soldier would like a paternity test to ensure he is the father, and if so he would like a custody and child support order to build a relationship and support the child. He has had trouble locating the mother and child in the past, so there may be some question about jurisdiction.
