Volunteer Attorney Assists Soldier To Re-Establish Contacts With His Children

July 9, 2015

An Army servicemember had been stationed in a different state from his children and his wife would not allow him child visitation. As a result, the soldier wished to obtain a divorce with shared legal custody and a visitation order that coincided with his military duties. The ABA Military Pro Bono Project connected the servicemember with a pro bono attorney who generously provided an extraordinary number of hours to assist the servicemember.  This attorney assisted in guiding the servicemember’s ex-spouse to obtain her own attorney, resolved alleged child support arrears which proved unfounded, and negotiated, drafted and arranged for a divorce settlement with an emphasis on maintaining contact with his child while on duty and during deployments.
