grey Divorce

Grey Divorce is a term often used to describe individuals leaving long term marriages or common law relationships. Statistics Canada reports that “Grey Divorce” has been steadily growing among those aged 50 and over, with rates expected to increase. These same statistics also indicate that among Baby Boomers the trend is for increasing numbers of women to be the ones initiating Separation and Divorce.

Divorce Matters knows that if you are over 50 and contemplating Separation and Divorce, protecting your financial future is one of your primary concerns. Among couples of this age, it is not uncommon to find that one spouse has handled most, if not all, of the finances of the household, while the other spouse may have little or no knowledge of their financial affairs. For the spouse who is not used to handling the finances,  understanding all of this can be a daunting task.

The business side of Separation and Divorce necessitates learning about your income and expenses, your assets and liabilities. At this stage of life you also need to be clear about your pensions, your insurances, your retirement planning. This is all part of protecting your post-Separation future.

Divorce Matters has expertise with Grey Divorce and understands these unique concerns. Whether it is locating the financial documents and information your Divorce team requires, or assisting you with the financial organization you need to move on to the next stage of your life, Divorce Matters systems will help you.
