All sorts of issues can arise during the process of divorce, such as a disagreement over child custody or stress regarding the division of property. However, the emotional toll of divorce should not be overlooked and divorce can be particularly difficult for those who have been married for decades. Sometimes, people in this position may also be elderly, which can make the end of marriage especially hard. Our firm knows how tough splitting up with a spouse can be after so many years and we believe that you should do all you can to protect your future.
