Divorce After 50
There is no “typical” divorce scenario. All couples and individuals come to the decisions regarding their particular situation in their own way. Divorces happen to a range of couples — regardless of income, education level or age.
People over 50, however, may need to approach their divorce in a distinct manner. A divorce for men and women over 50 — what is sometimes referred to as a "gray divorce" — could be after a marriage of many years, even decades, with children grown up and out of the house. In many cases, people who marry after the death of a spouse or the end of their first marriage end up getting divorced. Whatever the reasons, people in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky over age 50 need to ensure they work with a lawyer who can consider their unique needs when it comes to divorce.
