Gov. Susana Martinez signed the Service Member Child Custody Act on Saturday. The law prevents any changes to child custody arrangements while either parent is deployed. Officials said they hope the law will make life a little easier.

“You get calls from service members who are deployed where it’s just devastating to hear that they’ve been served with custody papers, and they’re fighting a war and trying to figure out what’s going on with their kids,” said Amanda Pagan, a National Guard judge advocate general.

Martinez said the law means service members can focus on their work abroad instead of thinking about custody battles back home.

It took lawmakers three years to craft the law.
