Helping Those Facing Divorce Later In Life
Many seniors are going through the process of divorce following retirement. The issues seniors face are different from those faced by younger couples. Seniors no longer have children living at home. Often, they have accumulated a large amount of assets and property. And sometimes they are responsible for raising stepchildren and other children from prior marriages. A divorce can drastically reduce the assets and finances available for you. It is important that you take your needs into consideration before finalization of a senior divorce takes place.
