Our lives take many paths. Even though we may start down one, changes in our lives may lead us down another. These changes can occur anywhere and at any time. This, perhaps, is one reason why, as was discussed on the blog a few weeks ago, gray divorces are becoming more common. Individuals who were married in their 20s or 30s may not be the same people when they are in their 60s or 70s. When no longer compatible, these individuals may find that it is time for a change, and divorce may be just the right move for them.
Yet, making such a big change late in life may be scary for some. They may be unsure if they can find financial and emotional stability at such a late stage, and they might be unsure if they can handle the oftentimes drawn out process of marriage dissolution. For others, the idea of divorce may be freeing, and they might not be able to wait to start their new life.
Regardless of which side of the coin you fall on, if you are considering a divorce, then you should do everything you can to make sure the process progresses smoothly and fairly. Failing to do so could mean that you and your children lose out on much needed financial resources. Therefore, if you are considering divorce, you may want to discuss the matter with a qualified and experienced family law attorney.
