Military Law Review

Introduction: The Soldiers? and Sailors? Civil Relief Act of 1940 is one of the most misunderstood statutes ever passed by Congress and signed into law by the President. Too often a ?soldier or sailor? finds himself in a financial or legal quandary after having acted on some false or misleading information about the Act. The Act is not a panacea for all the problems that an individual faces when he serves in the armed forces, Rather the Act merely permits the serviceman the chance to adjust to the armed forces without having to face legal and financial problems which may arise as a result of military service. The Act itself states that its purpose is to provide ?for the temporary suspension of legal proceedings and transactions which may prejudice the civil rights of persons? in the armed forces. The Act then does not extinguish any right, but merely suspends legal proceedings and transactions regarding such rights.
