A Marine Corps servicemember seeks pro bono help to seek emergency guardianship over his minor sister. The Marine recently discovered that his father has sexually abused one of his two sisters. His younger sister, while not the abuse victim, has been left alone in the home with the father and the mother, who has been complicit in the abuse. The father has made previous attempts to abuse the minor sister. The Marine is very concerned about the minor sister’s safety in the home and would like to seek an emergency guardianship order for her.
