A Coast Guard member seeks pro bono help to modify a child custody order and adopt his stepchild. All of the children currently reside with the servicemember. The servicemember and his ex-wife had two children, and his ex-wife had another child from a previous relationship, but the servicemember has been that child’s only father figure. His ex-wife was recently in a major accident and is an incapacitated quadriplegic. A relative will soon be the ex-wife’s appointed guardian for legal matters.
