The BBC are running a report today (10.11.15) on the rising trend for divorce later in life. There are a number of reasons that may lay behind that such as increased life expectancy, people seeking more from their retirement, and/or being in a stronger financial position than generations before them. Of course, individuals of a certain age looking to divorce may by that stage have built up a significant degree of personal wealth, say in the form of property, savings and pensions, and it is all the more important to take early legal and financial advice to properly plan for retirement.
