On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in divorce on Friday, October 13, 2017.
Whether someone is worried about the outcome of a child custody dispute or is unsure of how their marital property will be divvied up, splitting up with a spouse can be tough in many different ways. However, those who have made the decision to file for divorce shortly before or right after retiring may face additional challenges. Our law firm also realizes that some people may be caught off-guard after their spouse decides to call off the marriage right around the time of their retirement. If you are facing these hurdles, you should review your rights and take steps to protect your future.
Divorce can be hard, but it can also be viewed as a new beginning. Likewise, retiring can be difficult for some people, but for many it is also a fresh start. If you recently retired, your daily life could have changed in all sorts of ways. For example, you may have more free time and your daily routine has likely changed quite a bit. Ending your marriage can also change your life in a multitude of ways and you could have a hard time processing these changes if you are already trying to adjust to life after retirement.
Sometimes, people feel too stressed out or busy to even think about family law difficulties they are facing. However, you could be able to ease some of the concerns you have by setting aside some time to review your circumstances.
