Staten Island Senior Divorce Attorney


According to the National Center for Family & Demographic Research, divorce among people age 50 and older has more than doubled since 1990. New York is no exception, particularly after passing no-fault divorce laws in October 2010. Although older couples no longer have issues pertaining to children, it is still necessary to resolve matters related to property division and spousal maintenance. Additionally, unique concerns arise pertaining to retirement accounts, workforce re-entry/training, health care and the declining health of spouses as they age. These matters, as well as your divorce as a whole, can benefit from the thorough analysis of an experienced divorce attorney.
