Making the decision to file for a divorce can always be hard, but for some people it is especially difficult. For example, those who recently retired or plan on retiring in the near future may have even more uncertainty when it comes to ending their marriage. If you are facing these hurdles personally, you should go over the ins and outs of your unique situation and do what you can to prepare. Our law firm is well aware of how tricky these cases can be, whether you are worried about child support, the distribution of your marital property, spousal support, or other family law matters.
As if divorce does not have enough of an impact on people from a financial standpoint, retiring can also raise concerns about money. Because of the potentially serious impact that both of these changes could have on your finances, you should do what you can to ensure that you are ready for any problems that may arise. For example, you may want to familiarize yourself with the laws regarding property division and you should try to have a good idea of what your finances will look like when you are no longer working, which could be especially important if you will be required to pay alimony or child support.
Even though it can seem tough for some people to face these two huge changes, some can ease their concerns by carefully preparing themselves. Over in our divorce section, more family law topics can be accessed.
