Trusted Guidance For Divorces Later In Life
Divorce is no longer just for younger people. As people in the United States live longer, many are deciding to end their marriages after 30, 40 or 50 years together. Their reasons vary, but the thing they have in common is the need for a committed and practical divorce lawyer.
If you are considering divorce after age 50, or if your spouse has already filed, contact The Law Offices of Dawn K. Gull in Wexford. Our lead attorney, Dawn K. Gull, has practiced divorce law in Allegheny and Butler counties since 1996.
What Makes ‘Gray Divorce’ Different
The divorce process changes depending on what age you are when you file. People getting divorced in their 20s and 30s tend to have young children, so child custody and support are going to be important. Meanwhile, the older you are and the longer you have been married, the more likely you are to have accumulated valuable items like a house and retirement accounts. For divorce near or past retirement age, the most common goal is to ensure that you will have the financial resources to enjoy the years ahead.
As a divorce law firm, The Law Offices of Dawn K. Gull brings a wealth of experience and practical consideration to property division. We understand how important it is to our clients that the marital property is divided fairly and that they get to keep their separate property. If you have few financial resources because your spouse was the primary breadwinner, spousal support may be a possibility.
