"Gray divorce" - why the increase in divorces after 50?

In the past 25 years, the divorce rate for people above fifty has doubled while the number of divorces for those above sixty-five has tripled. Those under fifty are still more likely to divorce, but some segments in that group are actually seeing a decrease in their divorce rate. 

So why the increase for those in the "gray divorce" category? The Pew Research Group outlines and evaluates some of the reasons and statistics.

Riley Law Firm blog goes on the air

Since opening my law firm's doors in 2006, I have strived to make Riley Law Firm a respected member of the Birmingham legal and business community. As a solo practice attorney who focuses on personal attention, being successful at being a good neighbor is just as important as being successful at my career.

A large part of my firm's success has always been attributed to clear communications. I am proud to announce that I am now starting a blog on this website. My intent is to highlight stories of local and national legal interests, primarily within our legal focus of Alabama divorce and criminal defense. I hope you will find the stories interesting and I encourage you to share your thoughts with me.
