Matrimonial lawyer Green explores the special legal, monetary, and emotional burdens of a marital split that occurs after age 50. She covers how to select and work with an attorney, the choice of legal mechanisms for terminating a marriage, and how to work out a fair division of marital property. The discussion of postdivorce health-care coverage, retirement benefits, and estate planning is thorough and practical, and will enable readers to plan for the changes that may occur in those critical areas. Those looking for evidence that there is life on the other side of a gray divorce will appreciate the chapter of personal survival stories. Appendixes include guidance on inventorying assets and calculating living expenses, as well as a list of state insurance risk pool contacts. VERDICT By focusing on the exceptional concerns of the growing number of aging divorcés divorcées, this book fills a gap on the self-help divorce shelf. Essential for public libraries.
