Going Through A Pennsylvania Divorce After 50? Our Attorneys Can Help.

So-called “gray divorces,” involving couples in their 50s, 60s and beyond, are on the rise. While divorce is never easy at any age, gray divorces have unique dynamics and challenges that distinguish them from divorces earlier in life.

For more than 30 years, the lawyers at Beroes Law Center have been guiding our Pittsburgh clients through the end of their marriages. We have the skills and experience to handle even the most complex divorce situations.

Why Are Divorces After 50 Different?

The longer the marriage, the deeper the emotional and financial entanglements a couple may have. Yet, social changes, personal changes, health issues, empty nest syndrome, infidelities and other factors can still drive long-standing couples apart.

Gray divorces are unique, however, due to:

  • Retirement issues: The division of retirement savings, pensions and other assets accumulated over the years takes on critical importance during these divorces, since older couples may have limited opportunities to recover financially post-divorce.
  • Health concerns: Aging comes with its own set of health challenges, and divorce may require one or both parties to reassess their needs, and that can affect the negotiations around health insurance and spousal support.
  • Estate planning: Gray divorces require careful consideration of estate planning and legacy issues. Individuals may need to update their wills, trusts, and other estate documents to reflect their new marital status and protect their adult children’s inheritances.
