What's covered

Divorces amongst the over 70’s have increased by 50% since 2005. Such divorces raise a wide variety of specific issues, some of which come into sharper relief as a result of Covid-19. The law is the same for all ages, but the factors which come into play in such cases (not all of which are obvious) will often need careful and sensitive thought.  


This seminar will touch on, in particular:


     1     The changing nature of our client base.

     2     Consideration as to whether a divorce is the appropriate route.

     3     The impact of divorce on inheritance and wills, and estate planning


     4     Pensions and “pension gap syndrome”.

     5     Health and life expectancy.

     6     Variation applications brought later in life.

     7     Care home fees.

     8     Mental capacity and powers of attorney.

     9     People marrying later in life.
