Older couples increasingly require family law assistance

Despite the apparent stability of older people relative to their younger counterparts, baby boomers are responsible for a surprising statistic: men and women over the age of 50 are getting divorced more than ever.

That's certainly what one woman thought after losing her employment at a fast food restaurant in Alberta's neighbouring province.
