There are Many Things to Consider in a Gray Divorce

On Behalf of | Dec 8, 2019 | Divorce

Divorce rates may have stabilized for many age groups, but those above the age of 50 are experiencing a rapid increase as the number of “Gray Divorce” cases here in Carlsbad and across California continues to increase.  There are many things to consider in a Gray divorce and this is why it is important to seek the advice and counsel of the experienced Certified Family Law Specialists at Burke & Domercq.

Community property, investments and retirement assets as well as a business or professional practice ownership are common elements in an Oceanside, Encinitas or Carlsbad gray divorce.  The accurate valuation and division of the community interest in a closely-held business or professional practice and issues surrounding spousal support are common challenges.  Those who are above 50 have spent a lifetime building their retirement portfolios, investments and other financial and physical assets.  They generally have substantial equity in their family home or may even own multiple homes or rental property.

We understand the unique challenges of gray divorce.  Each of our partners is a peer of yours who has represented clients before North County San Diego Courts for multiple decades.  Pierre Domercq was named Family Law Attorney of the Year this past June by the North County Family Law Specialists.  The award noted “You enjoy a richly deserved reputation as the consummate attorney among San Diego County Judicial Officers and your fellow attorneys.”  There are many things to consider in a gray divorce, and when so much is at stake it is important to have a skilled and proven attorney on your side.

We represent parties in divorce and family law mediation to protect their interests and to positively influence the outcome in these cases.  Gray divorce clients often wish to protect their privacy and the personal financial and professional information associated with their gray divorce.  Mediation is a confidential environment which provides a productive working environment while protecting the confidentiality of important information.
