When Older Couples Separate, I Can Assist
If you have been married for a lengthy period of time, you will likely have many different issues to consider in the event of a divorce compared to younger couples.
With more than 14 years of experience, residents of Belleville, Illinois, and Metro East have turned to my law firm, Judith Trentman Wilson, Attorney at Law, P.C., for effective legal representation that protects their best interests. I can provide the same high-quality service for you.
A Late Life Divorce Can Be Financially Complicated
If you and your spouse are older, you likely have accumulated a greater amount of assets than younger divorcing couples. While you may not have to worry about parental responsibilities (child custody) or child support, you may have to worry about:
- More expensive spousal support payments
- The tax implications of your divorce
- Complex property division that involves pensions and retirement savings, business valuation disputes or multiple properties
I have worked with forensic accountants and business valuation experts to help many older couples with these complex matters, and helped them settle their divorces quickly and efficiently, allowing them to move on to the next phase in their lives with little added stress.
Additionally, as an experienced estate planning lawyer, I can help you make the necessary updates to your estate plan if you and your spouse decide to divorce. This is an important step to protect your estate and your beneficiaries from needless litigation in the future.
