Bryan, Texas Gray Divorce Attorney

When people think of a divorcing couple, they usually imagine a couple in their 30s or 40s, probably with underage children. But the reality is that divorce among older generations is becoming much more common in Brazos County than it used to be.

Divorce for couples above the age of 50 is referred to as “gray divorce” because of the unique challenges and experiences of getting divorced later in life. After decades of building a life together, it can be difficult to untangle the consequences of a divorce, both financial and emotional.

At C.E. Borman, our team of Texas divorce attorneys understand the needs of clients going through divorce later in life. We use our decades of experience to help guide our older clients through the divorce process smoothly.

Property Division in Gray Divorce

One of the major points of contention in any divorce is the division of community property. But for older couples, that property division can pose some unique difficulties.

  • After a lifetime of accumulating assets, the volume of community property that needs to be divided is larger than in other divorce cases.
  • Similarly, older spouses may not remember every single asset in their possession.
  • Some assets can be particularly difficult to parse through, as they often represent a mix of separate and community property. For example, retirement accounts, pensions, Social Security, insurance, and long term care coverage.

As a result, the process of determining what and how much each spouse receives in the divorce can be a longer and more legally complex process when the divorcing couple is older.

Hiring an experienced and local attorney with experience in gray divorce can save you time and money, and give you peace of mind that your assets are being distributed fairly.

Recovering from Gray Divorce in Bryan, Texas

In addition to the pitfalls of dividing property, your experience after a gray divorce can be challenging as well. Both financial and emotional recovery can be particularly difficult for older couples.

  • Financial Recovery: Many divorcees find themselves needing to go back to work, but rejoining the workforce at an older age is not always easy. Not to mention that gray divorcees may not have the same ability to perform work. An attorney with experience in gray divorce will be able to fight for your needs, and help you come up with a plan for financial stability.
  • Emotional Recovery: Many older couples are empty nesters, which means that some divorcees find moving out to be lonely. At C.E. Borman, we provide extensive resources to our clients to help them recover from divorce, from counselors, to support groups, to benefit programs.

The good news is that there are Bryan attorneys with the experience to help you lead a healthy financial and emotional life after divorce.
