Customer: replied 1 year ago.
on to file for divorce in the state of CA, it asks if either party is in active duty, and I selected no because he is active reserves not active duty. It then printed the forms and on the forms the box that states (The respondent is a member of the military services of the United States of America and waives all rights under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act. No appearance fee is required) Is not checked off and im worried it should be due to he is a military service member although he is not active duty.

Yes. You would need to classify him as active duty if he is active in the reserves.
