The most important protection offered to service members in this regard is the fact that all home foreclosures of military service members must be carried out in court.

Even in situations where the state allows for out-of-court home foreclosure proceedings, if the home is owned by a service member, court proceedings are required under federal law. Service members whose homes are foreclosed upon while they are deployed on military service can submit a written request to the court to receive postponements.
