Divorce Rates Increase as Economy Improves

Published on 12/06/2010 -

The number of unhappy couples seeking divorce in the US has increased as the economy improves and stabilizes.

Prior to the economic upswing, couples considering divorce held off on finalizing the decision because of a severe reduction in real estate values, as well as trying to establish a new home in uncertain times.

According to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, certain indicators across the United States have shown that the economic turnaround have caused the divorce rate to once again begin its rise. Divorce lawyers have shared that there has been an increase in individuals seeking information on divorce in their offices or through their websites.

Still, the economic factor of a divorce is still a significant factor to whether or not a couple follows through with the decision to separate from their spouse. Child support, property division and alimony are highly discussed topics brought up with legal counselors, as are taxes and highly complex asset division.

Legal counsel for divorce is recommended for those who are concerned about having a variety of options available, as well as those who need to evaluate their marital property and income, which could potentially become sources of conflict.
