Successfully Helping a Servicemember with Divorce and Child Custody Before Deployment

An Airman was concerned about the custody of her child and her access to the child while deployed due to on-going divorce proceedings. She sought to find an attorney who could help her with her divorce and ensure that she would not lose access to her child when deployed. Through the Military Pro Bono Project, an attorney offered to help the Airman and was able to resolve these issues before her deployment.
