Divorce rates continue to rise among the over 50's, contrary to the norm. With people living longer, living more active lives and retiring later, many of our older clients are deciding that the prospect of continuing in an unhappy marriage 'til death do part' is an unwelcome prospect. As well as the emotional fall-out, the older divorcees must also address practical issues including how to fund on-going income claims, re-entering the job market at an older age, retirement, sizeable pension shares, inheritance planning, the possibility of remarriage going forward and pre-nuptial agreements.
