Cook County: An Army servicemember stationed in another state seeks pro bono help with a post-divorce matter. The servicemember and his ex-wife received a divorce judgment in another state, in which she was awarded the couple’s car. However, the car is registered under both of their names and the ex-wife has received hundreds of dollars in traffic tickets, which the soldier has paid because he is concerned that a debt could jeopardize his credit history and security clearance. He seeks domestication of the out-of-state judgment and a new order stating that his ex-wife must refinance the vehicle or turn over the car.
