Customer Question
I need a paternity...

I need a paternity test of someone in the military but #1 I don't have the money and I was wondering if the military would pay for it and #2 How would I start the process?

Lawyer's Assistant: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page.

Ok

Lawyer's Assistant: Are you overseas or stateside?

I'm located in Virginia but he is based at Fort Leonardwood Missouri but is currently deployed in Korea.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?

No because I don't know the correct steps to get this process started.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Not that I know of.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
