Divorce For Older Couples

The divorce rate for couples over age 50 has more than doubled in recent years. This can be attributed to several factors, not the least of which is the desire to live an emotionally happy and satisfying life. With children grown and the number of years ahead of major concern, many older couples are choosing to go their separate ways.

Called "gray divorce", these cases have issues that are very different from younger couples. With more years together, there are often more complex assets including businesses and real estate, to divide. One or both spouses may be close to or already retired, impacting the payment of spousal maintenance. There may also be health issues to take into consideration. At Goostree Law Group, we have worked with couples of all ages, including many as they near their retirement years.
