An Army servicemember seeks pro bono assistance modifying her divorce decree. The servicemember and her husband, who is also a servicemember, entered into a separation agreement, which they mistakenly believed established joint physical custody of their minor children. However, the separation agreement -- and resulting divorce decree -- gave Mother primary physical custody of their children. Mother and Father are in agreement and now want the divorce decree modified to reflect their current living arrangement, so Father can maintain his current Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) from the military.
