Guide To Veterans Legal Issues

The Servicemember's Civil Relief Act 13 The Servicemember's Civil Relief Act (SCRA) provides a wide range of protections for individuals entering, called to active duty in the military, or deployed servicemembers. It postpones or suspends certain civil obligations to enable service members to devote full attention to duty and relieve stress on family members of those deployed servicemembers. A few examples include these obligations:

• Outstanding credit card debt
• Mortgage payments (including foreclosure)
• Pending trials
• Taxes
• Terminating leases.

The SCRA covers all active duty service- members, Reservists and the members of the National Guard while on active duty. The protection begins on the date of entering active duty and generally terminates within 30 to 90 days after the date of discharge from active duty.
