Gray divorce is a term used when discussing the dissolution of a marriage that comes well into the parties' adulthood. It may occur after a couple's children have grown and moved out of the house, after they have stopped working and have settled into retirement and while they are planning their twilight years. Divorce is not only for the young. Many older Colorado residents have chosen to end their marriages when they are into the sixties and seventies.
At a time when many individuals may be taking stock of their lives, gray divorcees are facing serious challenges to their legal rights and financial stability. Dividing a couple's assets can be a difficult and lengthy process when the partners have lived with their finances comingled for decades, and they may discover that supporting themselves on their own is a greater challenge than they would have initially anticipated. A retired gray divorcee may experience stress at the thought of returning to work to support them, or may worry that their divorce will affect the financial inheritance they thought they had prepared for their kids.

She and her firm work with gray divorcees as individuals to ensure that they are treated with the particular legal guidance their cases require all while preserving open and respectful communication between the attorney, staff and client.
