Over 55 and facing Property Settlement and Divorce?

Property Settlement and Divorce over 55

Have you been in a long marriage for years but now face the harsh reality of  property settlement and divorce in your golden years? Have you saved for retirement all your life with a spouse only to realise your retirement savings will now have to be split?

No doubt you are worried about protecting as much as you can of your hard earned assets and ensuring you are as comfortable as possible in retirement.

Being single after many years in a relationship can be especially daunting. Society has changed considerably and the last time you went on a date may be a distant memory.

If you are contemplating property settlement and divorce later in life you need a caring lawyer on your side to address the unique issues your situation presents. Divorces for those over 55 have different ramifications than divorces for younger couples. You don’t have the luxury of another 20 years of your working life to recover from your divorce financially. It’s imperative that you take proper precautions to protect your financial interests.

Coming to terms with a divorce on an emotional level can be particularly difficult after a long relationship. You may have spent most of your life together dreaming of the time when you could slow down, travel, and enjoy the fruits of years of hard work.

Those who have “traditional” roles in a relationship now face the unsettling thought of doing all the tasks your former spouse previously did. If you were primarily the financial provider you may now face the thought of cooking, cleaning, and running a household on your own. For the homemaker, the thought of now providing for yourself financially can be very unnerving.


Fortunately, you don’t have to face your property settlement and divorce on your own.
