Divorcing Later In Life Requires Thorough Care
Late-life divorce, or “gray divorce,” has a few key differences compared to midlife divorce. Couples might not need to worry about dividing parenting time, but other aspects of divorce can be more complicated. If retirement is on the horizon, for example, access to retirement savings may be a primary concern.
