Re: son needs help
As part of the divorce settlement, your son can request that his wife be held responsible for
paying the balance of the lease obligation
without any contribution on his part. Also, there are state laws which protect a serviceman being transfered out of state from being held accountable for having to break a lease obligation due to such transfers.
