Our Background

The Former Military Spouse Blog was established in 2011 when military spouses and former military spouse became concerned about Oklahoma representatives initiatives to propose USFSPA changes that would be retroactive back to June 26, 1981.

There was an immediate concern that these USFSPA proposals would require former military spouses to repay portions of alimony and retired pay previously received, which could result in thousands of dollars of debt for former military spouses.

The former military spouse blog became a place for current military spouses and former military spouses to learn more about USFSPA proposals taking place across the U.S. and the division of retirement pay in military divorces.

We’ve since expanded to include a mixture of legal issues, divorced parenting tips, entrepreneurship, and patriotic shopping. Find resources to save your marriage, steps to take prior to divorce, or how to begin anew when your decree is finalized. Keep up-to-date on current news by subscribing.
