An Air Force servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a child custody matter. The Airman is stationed overseas and has a child who currently lives primarily with her mother in the state. The couple was never married and there has not been a custody order entered concerning the child. The Airman recently became aware of pending drug charges against the child’s mother, and he is concerned for the child’s safety. He would like assistance to formalize his visitation time with the child in a custody order, and potentially seek primary custody when he returns from overseas and/or if the child’s mother is incarcerated.
