Legal Questions for Seniors Who Divorce

Seniors contemplating divorce face specific legal questions, such as:

  • Social Security Benefits: A spouse is not entitled to half of your Social Security payments but may receive derivative benefits that don’t impact your own payments. These benefits are considered when calculating spousal support.
  • Spousal Support and Age: There is no automatic cessation of spousal support at age 65. It’s determined by income, not age, but a court won’t impute income for a spouse beyond this age.
  • Continuation of Spousal Support Post-Retirement: Spousal support can continue if the retired individual still receives income from investments and retirement plans.
