Okaloosa County Gray Divorce Attorney

Let Us Help You Navigate This Difficult Situation

Gray divorce is a term people have started using for a divorce involving people over the age of 40. Most people who fall into this category have been married between 20 and 30 years, meaning they likely share children, retirement accounts, and property together. Whether the couple has just grown apart or they have become different people after retirement, an increasing number of older individuals are deciding to call it quits.

Financial Repercussions

One of the most significant affects the divorce will have on you and your spouse will be on your finances. People going through a gray divorce might be retired or close to retirement. Gray divorce often endangers retirement for both spouses, since they might be living on half the income they had expected after the divorce. Typically, all retirement accounts and pensions will usually need to be divided equitably, or as fairly as possible. However, this could put you in a dangerous position if you can no longer afford to be retired after the divorce. Likewise, if you’re already retired, it can be difficult for older individuals to be hired, even with anti-discrimination laws in place.
