'Silver Separators' or the '35 Year Itch'

Max Lewis from 29 Bedford Row considers the issues involved when older couples divorce. Silver separations share several common features, not least pensions in payment, adult children, a lack of earning capacity and mortgage capacity. This seminar is intended to review a number of the issues that commonly arise in such cases. It is not an exhaustive overview of a complex topic, but is more an aide-mémoire when a silver separator comes in for the first time, and factors in relation to which thought is necessary as a matter progresses.
