The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act of 2003
Before the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) was passed in 2003, certain legal protections were once only available to Army and Navy members. Today, members of the Air Force and other branches of the U.S. military can benefit from the legal protections offered by the SCRA. In a military divorce, the SCRA can delay divorce proceedings (and other civil proceedings) until the service member is available to appear. Due to the nature of military service and deployment, it is not always possible or convenient for a service member to appear or participate in a case.
