What Is The Service-members Civil Relief Act?

In a civilian divorce, one spouse will serve the other spouse with divorce papers and the receiving spouse will have a certain amount of time to respond. Deployments, training, overseas postings and other common aspects of military life can make it difficult for a spouse in the military to schedule their next steps. The Service-member Civil Relief Act (SCRA) is a law that can allow an active-duty spouse to request a stay on the proceedings. This delay can prevent any legal proceedings, including divorce, child custody hearings or support hearings, to occur for at least 90 days. The stay can be extended until the service member’s duties no longer interfere with their participation.

How Divorce Affects Military Pensions And Benefits

Military spouses are entitled to a great number of military benefits. These can include health care and part of the service-member spouse’s pension. Divorce can be a challenge when there is a military pension involved since there are many laws and regulations, which can make dividing benefits and pensions difficult. Ms. Gossman can evaluate your case for free and help you understand what options are available to you.
