An Army servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a child custody and support case. The soldier filed a paternity case for his child recently. However, he then had to go to training and wouldn’t be available to communicate with the court. He is also stationed overseas. There is now a default judgment against him, potentially implicating the Servicemember’s Civil Relief Act (“SCRA”), for child support that is not based on his pay. He seeks assistance to correct this.
