A Kansas soldier is fighting a battle to regain custody of the son he lost while he was away on active duty. The child custody case has made its way to the state Supreme Court. Last spring, Cpl Levi Bradley's marriage to his wife, Amber, fell apart. He was a Marine on active duty and spent some time in Iraq. He said his 2-year-old son, Tyler Allen, now lives with his estranged wife. Bradley thought that by invoking the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act -- which can assist active military personnel involved in lawsuits -- he wouldn't lose his son.
The case is Levi Adam Bradley v. Amber Bradley, No. 95,727.
