Legal support

In June 2023, while conducting a CLM interview, an interviewer met a teenager who had been abandoned by her father after she was born, and was being raised by her mother. Both mother and daughter had been self-reliant, but her mother became unemployed and unable to support their needs. She sought financial assistance from the teenager’s father to support her education, but he has refused to provide child support.

Action Taken: A case has been filed against the father at the family court through CoNE’s Legal Aid Clinic, and the case is ongoing.
