Military Wives and Divorce
with Lacey Langford, the Military Money Expert
Military wives have some special concerns when it comes to divorce. Women are already at greater risk of poverty and homelessness after divorce, but things are even more precarious for military wives.
Today I’m talking with Lacey Langford, a financial coach, veteran, and military wife who changes people’s mindset from being fearful of money to having control and confidence with it. She also hosts the Military Money Show, a podcast dedicated to finance topics for the military community, and MilMoneyCon, a national conference and community for financial professionals united by military service.
Listen in as we talk about things like the Uniformed Services Former Spouses' Protection Act (USFSPA), rules like 20/20/20 for receiving benefits in a divorce, and protections the SCRA provides service members during divorce. And most importantly, we talk about how military wives can financially protect themselves in marriage.
