We have received the following media request from BBC Breakfast Time who are looking a: for people divorcing in their 60s and b: for people who have discovered or accrued debts as a result of their divorce.
It would be a great opportunity to publicise the work that wikivorce does. If you think you would be interested in talking to them, please contact me, Hadenoughnow by PM in the first instance giving a brief outline of your situation and offsite contact details.
The latest ONS statistics show the downward trend in the divorce rate appears to be ending - with separations on the increase. They also show that more and more people over the age of 60 are seeking a divorce -- with pensioners being the only age group to have seen a rise in divorce rates in recent years. So we are looking for some case studies to discuss and illustrate the issues.
Breakfast is looking to talk to people who have decided to split up in their 60''s. To discuss the reasons for making the decision and how life has changed since.
Divorce and Debts:
We are also keen to hear from those who, upon proceeding with a divorce, discovered that their partner had debts they were unaware of. How has this affected you and does it have any implications for your financial future?
And finally, while going through the process you have been left with debts as you tried to come to an agreement?
