- Case Number: 22441
An Army servicemember who is stationed in Germany seeks pro bono help with a divorce. Her children reside with her on base in Germany. She is a victim of domestic violence, and her husband is now barred from the military installation. The husband is not an U.S. citizen, and he has returned to his home country. There may be questions of proper jurisdiction; thus, the soldier may need a divorce that does not address child custody.
