Servicemembers Civil Relief Act options

I'm not going to go into too much detail regarding the specifics of the above, but I just want to put it out there if you or your clients are or potentially might be be active-duty service members. As you may know, the above Act is a federal law (50 App USC Sec. 501 et. seq.) that gives a whole slew of protections to active-duty military people. IL adds to it with the IL Patriot Plan (PA 94-0635).

But just keep it in the back of your head because the Act allows great protections in terms of terminating leases, avoiding evictions, and stopping foreclosures. And if you're on the "other side" of these cases, it's tough to go forward against an active-duty military person.
