Successfully Assisted Soldier with Child Custody Matter
A soldier’s child lived with the child’s mother, and the soldier was stationed in another state. When the soldier visited his child, he learned that the child was not living in a safe home, as it involved drug use and physical abuse. The soldier went to a military attorney to discuss his concern about the safety of his child and his desire to seek a custody order. The soldier’s military attorney referred the soldier’s case to the ABA Military Pro Bono Project, which located a volunteer attorney who successfully obtained a custody order for the soldier.
