Older Billionaries Can Afford to Get Divorced But Can YOU? The High Cost of Grey Divorce with Lili Vasileff on The Divorce & Beyond Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq.#178

In this episode Susan Guthrie talks with Lili Vasileff, one of the Leading Divorce Financial Professionals in the Country and author of three books on the subject, about the reinvigorated topic of Grey Divorce, as highlighted by the recent spate of high profile billionaire divorces.  The fact is, they can afford to get divorced, but for those of more modest means, Lili points out the many financial pitfalls, and strategies to avoid or minimize them, for those divorcing later in life!

The news has been full of reports about some high profile, ultra high net worth divorces in recent months, most recently that of Bill and Melinda Gates who have been married for 27 years.  In fact, the later years or "grey divorce" is the most common age group getting divorced these days!  According to the most recent data from the U.S. Census Bureau, divorce rates were highest (about 43%) among both sexes, aged 55 to 64.  This is more than just an interesting little tidbit of information if you are in this demographic and getting divorced as the finanancial ramifications of getting divorced when you are older can have serious and long-lasting effects and mistakes made during the divorce process can be catastrophic.  As Lili and Susan say, "In divorce, there are no do-overs!"  The key take-aways are: get professional help if you can, educate yourself and take charge of your own financial destiny.  Lili is passionate about financial literacy and this episode will help you to see why - be sure to listen!
