Popularity of collaborative divorces increases

Linda Solomon, a Dallas marriage counselor, recently mentioned that collaborative divorces are becoming increasingly popular. Collaborative divorces force couples to work together as opposed to working against one another. Solomon mentioned that a collaborative divorce can set a precedent for the ex-couple’s future cooperation.

Solomon says that if it is possible for couples to work together, all parties tend to benefit, including the couple’s children. Common issues that serve as sources of contention during divorce are property division, child custody, and alimony payments.

Undergoing a divorce process can be extremely emotional and stressful. Hiring legal counsel can expedite the process while keeping both involved parties stay focused.

Rising divorce rate could indicate economic improvement

Jessamyn Schaller, an economics professor at the University of Arizona mentioned that a recent increase in the national divorce rate could be an indication of a stabilizing economy. Schaller conducted a study of the shifting U.S. divorce rates using data from the National Center for Health Statistics.

Schaller’s findings indicate that in times of economic prosperity, people are able to make decisions more freely, especially over their marital status. When people endure economic hardship, they either don’t have the financial means to divide assets, or have more pressing matters to contend with other than their relationships.
