Family law attorney assists Air Force member deployed in Afghanistan with divorce
A young Air Force servicemember was deployed in Afghanistan and needed a divorce. There were no children of the marriage, and household possessions had already been divided. However, because the servicemember was deployed, he needed help to move forward with the divorce in his home state. He visited a military legal assistance attorney in Afghanistan, who referred the case to the ABA Military Pro Bono Project to seek a volunteer attorney. The Project located an attorney who helped with a settlement agreement. With this resolved, the servicemember could focus on his duties in Afghanistan without worrying about his divorce.
