How A Family Law Attorney Helps Sun City West Residents
While Sun City West provides a great living environment for older people and retirees, some seniors face family stress during retirement that can affect their quality of life. Divorce has become more common among retirees, and it can be a very complex process to get divorced after many decades of marriage. Getting divorced when you are older not only means you are likely wealthier and have acquired many more assets to deal with, but it can also mean that there are issues with how pensions and retirement accounts should be divided.
Many older people also have to cope with the family law issues that their children face. If your kids divorce or if you become estranged from your children, you may have problems getting to see your grandchildren and may wish to pursue a legal claim to be awarded visitation. If your children are not able to take care of their own children, grandparent adoption or kinship care could be options to consider that would allow you to take the grandchildren into your home and provide for them on a temporary or a permanent basis.
Addressing these family law issues requires specialized help from an experienced attorney who is equipped to provide you with legal advice and advocacy. Singer Pistiner, P.C. can provide the help that you are looking for.
