Facing Divorce After 50?
When most people dream about retirement, they don’t envision a divorce on the agenda. However, divorce rates among those nearing retirement and post-retirement have soared in recent years. Whether it was your decision or not, confronting the end of a marriage – possibly a long-term one – in this stage of your life can be a challenging hurdle to overcome.
At Dowan Law Offices, we can provide guidance on the nuanced issues that arise in so-called “gray divorces.” Our attorneys have a wealth of experience handling complex family law cases in Kentucky. We can help you navigate this stressful transition in a way that sets the stage for the post-divorce life you envision.
Confronting Financial Hurdles
Although child custody is rarely a factor in these cases, since your kids (if you have any) are grown and self-supporting, financial issues can still cause enormous stress. You don’t have the cushion that your younger self had: decades of career growth ahead of you and ample time to rebuild your retirement savings. If you and your spouse have a high-asset marital estate, it can be challenging to untangle those assets in a way that’s fair and effective.
Our lawyers can help you address these and other challenges that may arise. We understand the intricacies of dividing 401(k)s, individual retirement accounts (IRAs) and other forms of retirement savings and investment accounts.
