Clearview Divorce News
The high number of people getting a divorce after the age of 50 has led to some new trends within the industry. Although there are some negative things associated with ending a marriage later in life, sometimes this decision can be positive for both parties.
According to an article in the Huffington Post, people who are unhappy often get stuck in a rut in their marriage, and this leads them to think that there are no alternatives to toiling away in unhappy matrimony. However, once a decision is made to change things, there can be an abrupt transformation that occurs in the mind of an individual.
The article noted that people who finally decide to make a change in their life often think that they are alone, but it doesn't take long for them to realize that they are in good company in terms of their age group.
There are large numbers of baby boomers who have ended their marriage and are taking advantage of the freedom that comes with a split later in life. Women who stayed at home throughout their life or men who spent their entire adult life at work are now given a chance to start anew.
However, to get this freedom and start a new chapter of life, a couple needs to be left with adequate financial resources following a split. A divorce alternative such as mediation can help to limit the overall costs associated with ending a marriage, helping to leave both parties financially solvent after it is all said and done.
The total costs are lowered due to the expedited nature of mediation, as it requires both parties to pay their attorney for less time than they would during a courtroom divorce.
