What Makes Divorce Over 50 Different?

Areas In Which A Skilled Lawyer Can Help
Couples who are over the age of 50 face a unique set of challenges. For example, even though you and your ex-spouse are divorced, you may still owe them some of the Social Security benefits you start collecting at age 62. This can happen if your marriage lasted for over a decade or if your ex-spouse hasn’t gotten remarried, but this doesn’t happen in every situation. Understandably, issues like this can be hard to understand and navigate on your own. Mrs. Carpenter has experience in this and other areas of the law, including:
- High asset division
- Dividing multiple properties
- Dividing investment and retirement accounts
- Alimony and spousal support
One big difference older couples face revolves around finances. If a couple divorces after they have already retired, alimony will be determined based on their retirement income, not what their income was before they retired. Mrs. Carpenter is a certified member and founding board member of the American Academy of Certified Financial Litigators. Furthermore, when she initially graduated law school, she handled business litigation matters for a national law firm. This knowledge is tremendously useful when navigating money-related concerns.
