In the last 20-plus years, it’s become more common for people nearing retirement to get divorced. In 1990, just 1 in 10 people who got divorced was over 50; today it’s 1 in 4. People who have been married for decades have intertwined, complex investments and finances. Other issues to consider include:

  • Avoiding tax penalties
  • Determining who will keep the home
  • Disclosing all debt
  • Taking into account health insurance and possible gaps
  • Looking at career assets and earning potential
