A Navy servicemember deployed in Afghanistan seeks pro bono help with a child custody case. The child custody order provides the servicemember with physical custody, and the father has limited visitation. While the servicemember is deployed, her child still resides in her home with her maternal grandmother. However, the servicemember failed to provide power of attorney to the grandmother or modify her child custody order before her deployment. The father has threatened to cease child support and seek child custody. The servicemember needs pro bono help to take appropriate actions.
