A Coast Guard servicemember stationed in another state seeks pro bono assistance with a divorce matter. The Coast Guardsman had a fight with his spouse, which ended in her being charged criminally and him seeking a domestic violence protection order. He also filed for divorce in the state they were living in. Thereafter, the spouse moved to the state of Washington and also filed for divorce in Washington. The Coast Guardsman would like assistance to have the Washington divorce filing dismissed. There are no children involved.
