A Navy servicemember seeks pro bono assistance to establish a child custody order. The mother has been arrested and has substance abuse problems. The servicemember has a court order which recognizes his paternity, but he has not established legitimation to allow him to exercise his parental rights. The servicemember wants to legitimate his child, and in his young child’s best interest, seek physical and legal custody.
