Gray Divorce

Gray divorce is the term used for a divorce that involves an older couple, a couple who may be retired. Because of the length of the marriages involved, gray divorces tend to be very emotional. Two lives that have been intertwined for decades in some cases will need to be divided, and that is stressful and complicated. At Schwam-Wilcox & Associates in Orlando and The Villages, our attorneys are here to guide you through the process safely and securely.

The Challenges Of Gray Divorce

In many ways, gray divorce is actually less challenging. Typically, there is no need to battle over child custody and visitation. However, there are still asset division issues that need to be resolved when it comes to divorce after 50.

You and your spouse may have full retirement accounts, 401(k)s or pensions that you are currently drawing from. Those will have to be divided. Your house may already be paid off, and you may even have real estate in other states. Perhaps it is a second home elsewhere, perhaps it is rental property elsewhere; whatever the case may be, it is subject to division.
