If couples could no longer stand each other, the trigger finger on divorce would not have to be pulled until a certain point in the future. According to the Los Angeles Times’ Emily Alpert Reyes, that future may have arrived.
“Married couples promise to stick together for better or worse. But as the economy started to rebound, so did the divorce rate.
Divorces plunged when the recession struck and slowly started to rise as the recovery began, according to a study to be published in Population Research and Policy Review.
From 2009 to 2011, about 150,000 fewer divorces occurred than would otherwise have been expected, University of Maryland sociologist Philip N. Cohen estimated. Across the country, the divorce rate among married women dropped from 2.09% to 1.95% from 2008 to 2009, then crept back up to 1.98% in both 2010 and 2011.”
The report may make residents of Gallatin in Sumner County, TN cringe. Data from the state’s 2012 marriage and divorce report showed that the county accounted for 835 out of the 27,742 divorces logged statewide. The economic recovery may have given more people a chance to serve divorce papers. Hammering the details should be done through expert attorneys in Gallatin, TN, like Kenneth J. Phillips – Attorney at Law.
Financial reasons are a key factor for some couples to delay their divorce. An expert stated that even low-income couples found a clean divorce to cost no more than $1,000, while prolonged court battles have a higher price. A family lawyer can help iron out the costs and assist with related matters.
Even college graduates who got married after their graduation can encounter the possibility of a split. Cohen said there were divorcees who went ahead because their house was one of many foreclosed. Some couples could not afford a divorce because one of them was out of work.
It practically costs a lot of money to get married, but the costs of divorce in a rebounding economy are too hard to avoid. A reputable Gallatin divorce attorney like Mr. Phillips would make the split workable for both sides.
