Divorcing in Your Later Years

Regardless of your age, divorce can strike at any moment if the marriage breaks down. Now, you are grappling with a “gray” divorce and everything that it can threaten. Luckily there are some useful ideas for coping with your situation.

You may have retirement accounts, pensions or other financial matters to grapple with should you divorce later in life. You may wish to consider the assistance of a forensic accountant to help you find all the different accounts that your spouse has and ensure that all your assets are distributed fairly among you and your soon-to-be former spouse.

It’s worth keeping in mind that with a gray divorce, adult children may also be affected. For example, if you have children that are currently in college and they are using cosigners to provide financial assistance, this could potentially complicate the dissolution of the marriage.

Know your divorce should not turn into a fight. By using mediation or other dispute resolution techniques, you may be able to keep down the cost of divorce.
