Late-Life Divorce Lawyer
While divorce at any stage in a marriage brings concerns and consequences regarding division of assets, properties, child custody and benefits, there are issues that are distinctive to those involved in a late-life divorce. As the divorce rate for those over the age of 50 continues to rise, division of assets is a concern. Yet, other primary issues include debts, alimony or spousal support. Given that the state of Georgia divides assets according to equitable division, it is important to seek legal counsel from an experienced family lawyer if you are considering a late-life divorce.
In compliance with equitable division, assets are first classified as separate or marital, with marital assets subject to division. Even so, benefits such as retirement funds or pension plans may also be divided. It's important to understand that late-life divorce cases are handled on a case-by-case basis. Thus, while child custody may not be of concern for you since your children are adults, you might have specific questions regarding other key expenses such as tuition for education or weddings.
