Baltimore County: An Army servicemember stationed in another state seeks pro bono help to resolve paternity, child custody, and child support issues. The infant child was recently born to a woman who was married to someone else, and the mother’s husband’s name is on the child’s birth certificate. However, the servicemember has a DNA test confirming his paternity. In hopes to exercise his paternal rights, the servicemember has filed a complaint for joint physical and legal custody, but fears that the mother will leave the country with the child.
