A Navy servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a divorce involving domestic violence. The sailor is the victim of physical and emotional abuse from her husband. She currently has a protective order against him in place for one year, but her husband has still found ways to harass her. For example, the sailor’s command recently received a congressional complaint filed by the sailor’s husband claiming that she was not supporting him as a dependent of an active duty servicemember. She seeks legal assistance to file for divorce and for protection in the proceedings from her husband. There are no children or significant assets involved.
