A Navy servicemember who is stationed in another state seeks pro bono help to enforce his child custody order. The order provides the servicemember with primary child custody, as the mother is unable to care for their child. The order also provides the paternal grandparents with custody if the servicemember is deployed. After the servicemember returned from deployment, his parents refused to return his child. Local police did not recognize his current custody order.
