Gray Divorce

A new term that has been emerging in the area of family law is a Gray Divorce, what does that mean? This is referencing that unfortunately, the older population, usually longer term marriages, are dissolving at a higher rate now than in the past. Gray divorce seems to be very emotionally charged…more so than divorces with younger couples. Most gray divorces have parties that have been married for 30, 40 or even 50 years, they have very little memory of life without their spouse. Their two families have been joined, and now sadly will have to be divided, there are not only children but grandchildren to think about, which makes this a very difficult step. The assets seem to be worth a significant amount of money, but the fear of being alone, or instability can be paralyzing, especially if you do not have guidance. Here at Schwam-Wilcox & Associates, we are cognizant of the challenges that a divorce can cause and how the issues that a gray divorce brings to the table magnifies the unknown, fear and challenges, and we are here to guide you through the process and provide you with the knowledge you need to gain the power to move forward.
