The men and women of the U.S. armed forces make enormous sacrifices on behalf of this country. As such, they have numerous rights and protections against creditor collection efforts, both built into the Bankruptcy Code and found in the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (formerly the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act). These additional protections can provide a significant amount of relief to servicemembers, whose financial situations can present unique challenges.

Written by Jack Williams and Susan Seabury, Bankruptcy and Debt under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act covers the provisions of both the Act and the Bankruptcy Code that are designed to assist debtors in the armed forces, and discusses the instances that may thwart a servicemember's eligibility for bankruptcy relief.

Replete with caselaw, the book also contains the relevant sections of the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act addressing servicemember protections related to litigation, debt collection and bankruptcy filings, and includes sample forms and letters.

This handbook provides invaluable guidance to the attorney representing the servicemember, and explains the process, issues and implications to the servicemember.
