A Navy servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a child custody modification matter. The sailor and her husband were divorced a few years ago, and at that time he was granted primary custody with the sailor having supervised visitation. This is because the sailor’s husband surprised her with an emergency custody petition and she was not able to make the hearing, where her spouse made baseless claims that she had mental health issues. Now that she is more established, she seeks to modify the custody order to allow her to have more time with her children.
