Servicemembers Civil Relief Act

Military Criminal Defense Lawyer

The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, the SCRA, was signed into law by President Bush on December 19, 2003. The new law is a revised version of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Civil Relief Act and provides important protection to members of the US armed forces. While protecting our country, many servicemen and women face hardship in meeting financial obligations, rent or mortgages back at home. If you are experiencing hardship at home while serving your country overseas, you should contact a proven criminal defense lawyer who is familiar with the complicated legal issues faces by our men and women in uniform. Under the SCRA, military members may be entitled to many types of financial relief including:

  • Mortgage Relief
  • Termination of Leases
  • Protection from Eviction
  • Reopening Default Judgments
  • 6 % Cap on Interest Rates
  • Employment protection for Reservists who have been mobilized
