Family Finances Series

About This Series

Managing finances while raising a family is difficult enough. Families facing the stress that comes with separation, divorce, or deployment can become overwhelmed by the accompanying financial changes of these circumstances. The Personal Finance and Family Development teams hosted a 3-part webinar series on Family Finances in 2018. Each of these webinars tackled the financial and emotional hurdles presented by changes in family structure.
