Over the years, there has been an increasing demographic trend of older couples seeking a divorce, often after many years of marriage. This kind of divorce is known as a grey divorce. These divorces are slightly different than a divorce involving a younger couple and have their own complexities. This is what Gathings Law Senior Partner, Honora Gathings, talks about in this week’s #TipOfTheWeek video.

When younger couples decide to divorce, the common issues that arise often concern child custody, division of property and assets, and alimony. However, a grey divorce raises major and unique issues. In the case of a grey divorce, issues that arise usually concern retirement, financial support, workforce reentry, dual household expenses, declining health, and increasing healthcare costs. In these instances, it is crucial to recognize and minimize potential problems in order to maximize the quality of life following a divorce.
