The only book with legal information and practical advice for older Americans dealing with divorce

If you're considering divorce later in life, you'll face unique and complex situations and decisions that simply don't apply to your younger counterparts. Written by an attorney who specializes in divorce among the over-50 age group, Divorce After 50 covers these subjects and much more:

  • how to get guidance from friends, family, and, as needed, lawyers
  • ways to divorce - collaborative, mediated, contested, etc.
  • marital property: what it is, what you do with it, and how to divide assets and liabilities
  • how to survive financially during and after divorce
  • how health care and estate planning are impacted by divorce
  • alternatives to divorce, including post-nuptial agreements

    Divorce rates are soaring among seniors, but the legal and emotional challenges you face as an older adult are different from those that apply to younger divorcees. That's why you need Divorce After 50, the only guide around that addresses the challenges unique to your age group.

    You'll get all the information you need to decide whether and how to divorce, plus plenty of divorce survival stories that help you determine your options -- and show you that there is, indeed, life after divorce, no matter what your age.
