How To Use
This Act has special and specific waivers of notice and other related stays to protect military members from being put in default automatically without personal service of legal papers and other related things.
This document can serve to inform the other side that this Act applies in this case. It can be sent by a lawyer or an individual. It is not legally binding since it is just noticed, though it has legal meaning as a protection to someone covered under the Act. It is referred to specifically in most small claims court proceeding documents.
Therefore, if the individual is covered, it is important to make the court aware of this fact, or any other court and party in a related matter—to protect the individual’s interests.
- Make multiple copies. Get a receipt from the person to whom the notice is sent, such as a fax receipt or overnight delivery service receipt.
