Don't Let Banks, Lenders, Landlords - or Anyone -

Violate Your Service member's Civil Rights! 

These laws entitle you to terminate leases (like apartments, cars, and cell phone plans) you had prior to joining, to have pre-service interest rates on loans and mortgages reduced to 6% for you and your spouse (including those on all student loans), and to special protections against liens, collections, evictions, foreclosures, default judgments, family court judgments, and the loss of health or life insurance.

Service member's Civil Rights Provide You With Financial Protection

Just by being on active duty (or called to active duty as part of the Guard or Reserve), you're entitled to these protections. It doesn't matter where you are - if you're eating MRE's in some far-flung hell-hole, or you're a Stateside military paralegal who lives right next to the lender who is trying to rip off your spouse. It's Federal law.

What often happens is that mortgage servicers, homeowner's associations, apartment complexes, banks, car dealers, self-storage unit owners, and the like will ignore these federal protections because they're difficult and inconvenient. These laws require things like swearing under oath that you're in the military and appointing a special attorney to represent you in any civil court proceeding. They require lenders to adjust their interest rates downward - which they DON'T like - and for landlords to suck it up if you need to move early.

Being a Military Servicemember carries with it responsibilities - but also special rights. The nation wants you to have, use, and enforce your servicemember's civil rights. Get in touch with me right now to find out how these laws can help you!
