The spouse of an Army servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a child custody matter. The spouse is the victim of domestic violence from her husband. The client had a child in a previous marriage and that child’s father is currently seeking sole custody of the child. The client’s current husband and abuser has submitted a memo to the court in the custody case claiming that the client has mental health issues, which is not true and is his opinion only. The court is considering the memo from the client’s current husband in the custody determination and the spouse seeks pro bono assistance with the custody case.
