Divorce After A Long-Term Marriage

During a divorce, one life becomes two. Individuals must divide their finances, split their assets and restructure their family relationships. For those ending a long-term marriage, the process can be complicated.

If you have been married for many years and are now divorcing, it is even more important that you work with experienced attorneys who always have your best interests in mind.

  • Health issues
  • Retirement prospects
  • Assets and income

We then work hard to get our clients the resources they need to leave their marriages and move forward with their lives. Common components of a long-term divorce settlement include:
