Divorce & Separation Lawyers

Divorce Overview

While divorce rates for the general population may have stabilized over the past several decades, they are on the rise among baby boomers. Divorce rates among couples over the age of 50 have doubled in the last 20 years according to a Bowling Green State University Study.

There are many reasons for getting a divorce. They can include: emotional or physical abuse (Violence Against Women Act {VAWA}), infidelity (cheating spouse), pregnancy, longer life spans (falling out of love), unfulfilled relationship (am I happy), economic and financial issues (debt, excessive spending), etc.

Younger divorcing couples with children are often tasked with dealing with separation of assets, living arrangements, child support and child custody issues. While those divorcing later in life (baby boomers) are more likely to be focused on living arrangements, retirements issues, employment options, pension and 401(k) plans, health insurance, investment accounts, IRAs and when to start Social Security.
