The spouse of a Marine servicemember seeks pro bono help with a divorce. The servicemember was recently convicted of sexually abusing his young daughter, and he is currently serving time in prison. Despite this, he has indicated that he will drag the divorce proceedings out as long as possible and will seek custody of the child, even though the children will be of age by the time that he is out of prison. The spouse has been left with no income since her husband was imprisoned, and she seeks pro bono help to petition the court for an expedited divorce and sole custody of her children.
