My husband left me when I was in my 60s

My spouse left me when I was in my 60s

I thank the team at CFL for the professional conduct of our family law matter.  Your team has made a very stressful time in our lives more bearable than otherwise would have been the case.

Navigating the complexities of grey divorce - Speaking with Mamamia Gillian Coote explains that couples who divorce later in life can be faced with a unique set of challenges.

“People who've been in long marriages often tend to be retired or close to retiring, meaning their ability to rebuild their financial position can be restricted. No one should have to struggle to make ends meet because of inadequate advice or knowledge during divorce when they should be enjoying a comfortable retirement," Gillian says, adding it is important to get expert advice during these challenging times.

While separation can be a complex issue for couples of any age, divorce over the age of 50 can add additional unique complexities to retirement plans, superannuation, pensions, inheritance, wills and estates
