An Air Force servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a child custody modification 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 custody of the child, which her mother will not contest. It is also expected that the biological parents will not contest.
