Volunteer attorney helped soldier who was struggling with a family law case pro se
An Army servicemember needed pro bono help to finalize his divorce that involved the custody of his children. Although the soldier and his wife agreed to the terms of the divorce, they struggled with the court system to finalize the divorce without representation. The soldier visited a military legal assistance attorney, who referred the case to the Military Pro Bono Project. The Project located a volunteer attorney who agreed to pro bono representation for the soldier. The attorney was able to help the soldier quickly finalize the divorce and arrange a parenting plan that was acceptable to both parties.
