About the Program

Divorce of couples in the mid-life stage and age range of approximately 45-70 years of age is unlike divorce at any other age range because this demographic is at prime income earning and asset accumulation years, compensation is often a blend of cash and sophisticated alternatives, asset valuation tends to be complex and managing emotions related to empty nesting and the challenges of telling adult children and long-standing in laws about the divorce and managing the consequent family dynamics comes with heightened challenges. The manner in which these divorces are handled is key to a successful outcome by which both spouses, their families, and succeeding generations are protected. These divorces can be handled with elegance if the lawyers involved use a negotiation mindset and take emotionally intelligent steps to prevent upticks in acrimony. An elegant process ensures an outcome by which the entire family can move forward without acrimony, taking sides, nor blame and anger.
