An Army soldier seeks pro bono assistance to obtain custody of his teenaged sibling. The teenaged sibling currently resides with the soldier and his wife, and they are her primary caretakers. The soldier needs a court-ordered custody arrangement, so that his sibling can be enrolled in DEERS—this will allow her to be eligible for military health care and other benefits. The biological mother will not contest the sought custody arrangement; however, the biological father may not be comfortable with the arrangement.
