Mr., it's Todd again. Related to the military renter I

Hi Mr. Simmons, it's Todd again. Related to the military renter I have who wants to break his lease. Though he signed it after receiving PCS orders. His response to the area of the SCRA you pointed out is (he's referring to the beginning of the Act): .................Todd, Below is the actual statute. Please note the section that says at any time after: If you have further questions, I can get you in touch with a legal assistance lawyer. What I was told this morning is that there is also legal precedent in the courts forinterpreting the law as broadly as possible in favor of the service member. Nick ................... the word “thereafter” of Section (1)(B) of subsection (b) seems to support me and not him. It reads: the servicemember, while in military service, executesthe lease and thereafter receives military orders for a permanent change of station or to deploy with a military unit, or as an individual in support of a military operation, for a period of not less than 90 days. What are your thoughts?

I have a woman that I dated. We got pregnant. She had medical expenses that I am willing to split with her and cover my share of the expenses. However, she's telling me that I can't deploy next month after I'm served with the legal paperwork. I need to deploy because it's my turn in the hopper. Can't I deploy and take care of whatever court appearances via VTC? She'telling me I can't deploy unless all parties agree on the VTC. What are my rights?
