An Air Force servicemember seeks pro bono help with a child custody modification case. The airman and her former spouse share joint custody over their two children. The airman believes that her military status was previously taken into account when the initial custody order was entered. Her former spouse has also repeatedly denied the airman access to her children and will not allow her to see them during her court-ordered parenting time. The airman also believes that her former spouse is emotionally abusing and manipulating at least one of the children. Now that she is stationed in the U.S., and due to her concern about her former spouse, she would like to seek custody of the children.
