The sacrifices of military life and the need for adjustments in the circumstances of active military personnel led Congress to pass a number of laws over the years. These apply to service members nationwide, including in Georgia. The laws generally attempt to assist military personnel who cannot always predict their schedules or whereabouts. In one recent case, a father who is in the U.S. Navy may lose child custody rights because he was posted to a submarine in the Pacific Ocean and missed a custody hearing.
