EXTRA FACTORS TO CONSIDER
The process for a gray divorce is the same as any other divorce case, however there are a number of other factors that must also be considered by both parties in order to secure their future. These additional factors can make a gray divorce extremely litigious as determining ownership of different assets and debts can be a lengthy process.
Additional factors to consider in a gray divorce can include:
- Possession of financial assets, including pensions, retirement accounts, and debts
- Social Security benefits
- General health status, medical insurance, and healthcare
- Long-term or even permanent alimony awards
- Wills and trusts
Older couples usually have accumulated more wealth from their lifetime of work history, meaning the assets involved can be far more valuable. When you combine this with the fact that most gray divorces also end a longer-term marriage, it is not uncommon to see large asset awards, including large and possibly permanent spousal maintenance awards.
