An activated Army National Guard member seeks pro bono assistance to establish a custody order over his former stepchild. The soldier has been his teenaged stepchild’s only father figure since the child was an infant. The soldier and the child’s mother divorced. Thereafter, Child Protective Services removed the child from the mother and later another relative’s home, and CPS recently placed the child with the soldier. The soldier would like to establish a child custody order such that he can maintain custody and provide his stepchild with a safe and stable home.
