The spouse of a Navy servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a divorce and child custody case due to domestic violence. The sailor has left the spouse in a dire financial situation, as she cares for the children and he refuses to pay for their housing or provide any financial support. The couple is also being sued by neighbors for property damages in an unrelated case, and the sailor has left the spouse to deal with this case alone. She seeks assistance with a divorce and to seek a custody order, and to defend in the lawsuit from her neighbors.
