Divorce When You Are Over Fifty
Kansas City Lawyer Assisting Clients Over the Age of 50 with Divorce Related Matters
Divorce at any age can be a stressful, life-changing event. However, when you are over the age of 50 and looking forward to retirement plans and your golden years, divorce can prove to be a much harder blow. The thought of changing your standard of living and starting over can be extremely intimidating.
At the Law Firm of Kevin Stuart Cavanaugh, in the Overland Park, Kansas area, I represent clients facing the end of a long-term marriage.

Special Considerations for Divorce Over Age 50
The majority of middle age couples have specific divorce related concerns that younger couples do not share. In long-term marriages, couples may have accumulated substantial debts and assets. Dividing these debts and assets, such as retirement accounts or 401ks, can prove to be a complex task necessitating the assistance of valuation experts or forensic accountants. In addition, spousal support may also prove to be more complex as a husband or wife may not have worked during the course of the entire marriage.
It is my goal to help you secure a divorce settlement that allows you to build a solid foundation for your future and preserve the lifestyle to which you are accustomed. I assure you, life will go on. You will be okay. The end of your marriage does not mean you won't go on to find happiness.
If you and your spouse have already decided divorce is the best option for your situation or you have questions about how the process works, please do not hesitate to contact me to schedule a free initial consultation.
