An Air Force spouse and her servicemember husband seeks help with a family law matter. The client has two children with a former spouse, who has not seen the children in over a decade. The airman has essentially raised the children, as their father has not been in their life. The airman is being deployed overseas, and he would like his spouse and stepchildren to join him, but the children’s father will not consent to them obtaining passports. The family seeks pro bono assistance to pursue the proper remedy so the family can remain together.
