An activated member of the National Guard seeks pro bono assistance with a paternity and child custody matter. The servicemember had a child with an ex-girlfriend and the couple was never married. Recently, the National Guardsman has become concerned about his child’s safety and wellbeing, as the mother uses drugs, has been in trouble with the law, and is struggling financially. He wishes to establish paternity so he can have visitation time with his son and support him financially.
