Divorce Later In Life Presents Unique Concerns

More people who are 50 and over are getting divorced. While these couples generally do not need to make the tough decisions about child custody and support, there are other aspects that can be equally challenging to resolve. For starters, many couples at this stage in life have accumulated substantial assets, including complex investments and retirement accounts.
