Guide for Military Divorces (and Other Cases)

Here’s a nice resource for military couples. It’s A Judge’s Guide to the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act by Mark E. Sullivan, and it’s available on the web site of the American Bar Association.

The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act is the sucessor to the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Civil Relief Act and appears at 50 U.S.C. App. § 501 et seq. The Judges’ Guide spells out how judges can decide whom it covers, how it works, and how to administer a case in which a servicemember is involved. It’s well done.
