Gray Divorce

“Gray divorce” is simply a nickname for spouses divorcing after a long marriage. The issues, concerns, and considerations are different for a longer marriage. One spouse may have substantial retirement benefits while the other spouse has very little, for example. One spouse may have had substantially more income during the marriage and expect continued earnings potential in the years after the divorce, as another example. Both may have accumulated significant assets and possessions during the years of the marriage, or maybe substantial debt. A good attorney knows the ins and outs of various retirement benefits and investments, can provide a spousal support analysis, and has associations with professionals for valuing a range of assets.
