You may have noticed that in New York and throughout the nation, more and more older people are getting divorced than ever before. In fact, the trend is rising so quickly, some have coined the term "gray divorce" to describe it. If you are age 50 or older and are considering or preparing for divorce, then this colloquial phrase applies to your situation as well. Many wonder why couples who have been together for 30, 40 or 50 or more years would decide to divorce.
You may be like other New York residents who feel as though they can't say "no" to a police officer. It is true that you can't refuse some of an officer's requests, such as to exit your vehicle, but there are some requests with which you don't have to comply, such as participating in field sobriety tests.
