How to terminating lease with extenuating circumstances?

Question Details: I'm 19, recently divorced and am working to join the military. I'm the only person living in my apartment. My ex-husband and my parents co-signers don't live here but their names are on the lease. How does the SCRA work in a situation like this? When I give notice that I'm shipping out for boot camp will the lease be fully terminated or will the lease fall back on my ex and/or my parents? My ex is living with his parents and not working so it is likely he would just default on the lease which means the remaining 7-8 months of the lease would fall back on the parents. Not something I want to happen so hoping there are options.
