Supporting Illinois Spouses Through Gray Divorce

Ending a marriage is never easy; it especially isn’t easy for couples who’ve spent decades together. Untangling years of accumulated assets and navigating new family dynamics can be challenging. However, the ups and downs of a gray divorce don’t have to tarnish your dreams and goals for the future.

The attorneys at Taege Law Offices are here to support you through every step of your divorce so you can live life on your terms. We can help you navigate your gray divorce effectively so you can move forward.

Common Issues That Arise In Gray Divorce

Those divorcing later in life can run into unique challenges when they split. Here are a few examples of how their circumstances can make things complicated:


When one or both spouses end up remarrying, that can complicate their divorce, especially if spousal support payments are involved or one spouse wants to bring a piece of shared property into their new marriage.

Our lawyers have seen numerous scenarios like these and can tailor our legal approach to effectively meet your needs and devise a strategy that keeps your best interests in mind.


If spouses wind up with stepchildren when they remarry, that can lead to challenges surrounding inheritance. In some cases, this could lead to probate issues. Courts typically determine what is in the children’s best interests even when they’re adults. Those who remarry after a gray divorce may consider getting a prenup with their new spouse to avoid potential inheritance issues.

Complex Assets

Spouses can accumulate numerous assets over the course of their marriage. And while dividing QDROs, retirement assets, real estate, and other assets in divorce can come with challenges, some assets may have significant value over the years. Sometimes, this can make dividing assets much more contentious or leave both parties feeling like they need more time to recover financial losses from splitting those assets.
