In a remarkable contrast to other age cohorts whose divorce rates are decreasing, the divorce rate among older Americans is actually increasing.  Having an understanding of two important economic concerns for divorcing couples in the 50-and-over demographic, known as “Silver or Late Life Divorce,” will help us as divorce professionals better advise clients:

Accumulated Wealth. By age 50 (and even more so by age 65), many people have accumulated some wealth, primarily a home and retirement savings (e.g., 401(k) accounts, IRAs, pensions, or deferred compensation). Therefore, in Late Life Divorce, the division of these assets often has greater significance than in the divorces of younger couples.

Retirement Income. By age 50 (and even more so by age 65), people are approaching their peak earnings as they approach retirement. Therefore, in Silver Divorce, retirement income often has greater significance than in the divorces of younger couples.

This presentation will address:

  1. Trends in late-life divorce
  2. Landmines in late-life divorce
  3. Valuing businesses during the pandemic
  4. Equity compensation: property division and income available for support

50 minutes with 10 minutes Q&A
1 CLE Credit and 1 CFP Credits are available for this program.

This program will be recorded and available on the NYACP Member Only area on the website.
