If you have been married for quite some time, you might face some unique challenges in a divorce. You might feel uncertain or have a fear of the unknown. You might not feel that you are making the right decision, simply because of the longevity of your union. You might be worried that you will not reasonably get the assets you deserve or that you will be assigned most of the debts. The attorneys at the Maine Divorce Group understand all of these concerns. We have helped many clients in your situation successfully navigate their divorce. When you need a family law attorney in Maine, look no further than our group of skilled attorneys.
You are not alone in seeking a divorce after decades of marriage, also known as gray divorce. Married women who are over 50 seeking a divorce accounted for nearly five percent of divorces in 1990. By 2017, that number had risen to 10.3. Part of this increase could be related to the fact that more older women are receiving divorce decrees that are fair and reasonable, making such a divorce more worthwhile. To receive a divorce that doesn’t just benefit your spouse, you need a Maine family law attorney who has experience representing other clients just like you.
No matter how long you have been married, two of the most tumultuous topics you will need to resolve are the division of property and other financial issues. A divorce essentially takes one household and splits them into two, requiring careful budgeting from both spouses. Additionally, all marital property will need to be divided. If you made a valid prenuptial agreement, it will be divided according to that document. If not, Maine uses the standard of equitable distribution or community property to determine how assets and debts are divided in a divorce. If you have been married for a long time, you likely have many assets and perhaps some that are complex. The courts will consider the following factors when dividing property in your divorce:
