Understanding and Navigating the Unique Challenges of Gray Divorces
Is it Time?
Are the children grown and gone (or nearly gone)?
Does it feel like you’re living with a roommate instead of a spouse?
Then, maybe it is time.
You just want to move on and enjoy life. You don’t want a heated, drawn-out, and litigious divorce. You just want to be treated fairly and ensure that your financial future is secure. You don’t want to take more than what is fair. You need an experienced attorney who can communicate effectively on your behalf and present a professional negotiation to resolve the divorce time and cost efficiently.
What is Gray Divorce?

How does New York's equitable distribution law apply to divorces involving businesses or other large or complex assets?New York is an equitable distribution state, meaning marital property should be divided in a "fair" manner, not necessarily a 50/50 split. Our Rochester divorce lawyers are experienced in navigating the equitable distribution process, especially when it involves businesses or large assets. Factors such as the length of the marriage, the contribution of each spouse to the acquisition or growth of the assets, and the future financial needs of each party will be taken into account when determining a fair division.
