Perhaps you're one of many Michigan residents who have been married for more than 25 years. You may also be among those whose relationships have encountered serious challenges in their later years in life. In fact, the divorce rate among people age 55 and over has more than doubled in the past 20 years.
You and your spouse have likely raised a family and may even be helping to raise grandkids by now. You might be business owners. You also might have accrued a high-net worth of assets throughout multiple decades of marriage. If you're currently considering filing for divorce, such issues may cause you to worry about potential difficulty in achieving a fair settlement.
