What is grey divorce?
The term grey divorce, sometimes also referred to as grey separation, has become increasingly prevalent in discussions surrounding marital dissolution in Australia.
The term refers to the age of people getting divorced being in a higher range, like couples aged in their mid-50s and beyond, choosing to part ways. If you’ve gone a little grey before this time, don’t get concerned, it doesn’t mean divorce is necessarily on the horizon.
While grey divorce in Australia brings its own unique considerations, it’s essential to remember that every couple’s journey is unique.
Working with experienced family and divorce lawyers during a grey divorce can make the process significantly easier. A couple going through a grey divorce is likely to have spent a significant period of time together and have a very intertwined relationship. This can make it difficult to work out a solution, even when the parties are amicable. It also usually means that the adjustment to life after divorce can be challenging too.
However, you don’t have to go through the divorce process alone. An experienced family law specialist can ensure that you understand all that is required of you from a legal perspective as well as help you understand all of the options you have available to you to resolve your matters.
