An Air Force servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a guardianship matter. The Airman’s 7-year-old nephew has lived with the Airman’s mother since he was 2 years old. Around that time, the Airman’s mother was awarded a conservatorship over the child due to drug use by the child’s father. The child’s mother has not been seen or heard from since the child was about 3 years old. The Airman seeks to take over guardianship of the child, which her mother will not contest. It is also expected that the biological parents will not contest the guardianship.
