What is SCRA?

In 2003, President Bush signed the Service Members Civil Relief Act (SCRA) into law which replaced and expanded the former Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act (SSCRA) from 1940.

  • Banking
  • Foreclosures & Mortgages
  • Auto loans
  • Leases & Contracts
  • Legal Proceedings
  • Family Law Considerations
  • Taxation
  • Voting
