Gray Divorce Attorney in Saratoga Springs, New York

Divorce is difficult at any age, but if you’re going through a "gray divorce"—divorce among individuals over 50 who have been married for a long period—the challenges are unique and often more complex.  

Clarisa Gentile is familiar with the ins and outs of family law and brings that knowledge to folks going through divorce later in life. Schedule a free consultation, today to get the legal assistance you need during these trying times.

The Gray Divorce Trend

The "Gray Divorce" trend is shaking up the narrative of lifelong marriage. As older individuals hit their silver years, many are calling it quits on marriage. It's not about midlife crises anymore—it's more about couples reevaluating happiness and fulfillment after decades together.  

After the nest is empty, some find their common ground has shrunk and they're ready for solo adventures. And with longer life expectancies, the prospect of independently navigating through the golden years may be more appealing to some than the traditional till-death-do-us-part route.  

Gray divorce has been on the rise for the last few decades. While younger couples might be focused on child custody or support issues, those in their golden years face different priorities—division of retirement funds, allocation of assets, support after long-term marriages, and sometimes even criminal defense matters that intertwine with the divorce. 

Gray Divorce in New York

In the state of New York, there is no specific law termed "gray divorce." New York's divorce laws apply to all divorcing couples, irrespective of age, including those undergoing gray divorces. 

These laws do not predetermine a 50/50 split but instead consider several factors to determine what is fair. These include the length of the marriage, the income and property of each spouse at the time of marriage and the divorce, the age and health of each spouse, and contributions by one spouse to the other’s earning potential, among other factors.
