An Air Force servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a divorce and custody issue. The Airman seeks a divorce after his spouse had an affair resulting in conception of a child. The parties have agreed to share custody for the time being, but the Airman seeks primary custody due to his spouse’s recent reckless behavior, including leaving the children unattended for periods of time. Despite the parties’ agreement, the Airman’s spouse has been dropping the children off with the Airman more often and they currently reside with him the majority of the time.
