Signs a divorce may be the best option

In some cases, it may be best for Virginia residents to get divorced as opposed to staying in the marriages. Although a divorce may mean that a relationship ended, it doesn't necessarily mean that the relationship failed. Instead, it means that the nature of the relationship has evolved into something else and that the love a couple shared in the past should still be remembered fondly.

Factors that increase the likelihood of divorce

Some Virginia spouses may wonder what makes a couple more vulnerable to divorce. Data from various sources provides some answers. For instance, physically attractive couples are often more likely to get a divorce. Higher divorce rates are also linked to higher wedding costs. Couples who spent more than $20,000 had the highest divorce rate while those who spend less than $1,000 had the lowest.

Signs that it's time for a divorce

An outsider may be able to tell a Virginia couple when it is time to quit their marriage. However, it could be more difficult for someone who is actually in a toxic relationship to know when to call it quits. Individuals who are considering a divorce may want to pay attention to some specific signs.

Uncontested divorce could be a simpler way to end your marriage

The decision to end a marriage is never an easy one to make, no matter the circumstances. However, there are times in which it may be possible to make this complex and difficult process a bit easier. For you, this may mean filing for an uncontested divorce.

More men's wages than women's garnished for child support

Some Virginia parents may be among the 7 percent of workers nationwide who have their wages garnished. A study by the ADP Research Institute that examined 2016 pay data for 12 million workers found that far more men than women had their wages garnished. Almost all of those garnishments were for child support while women tended to have wages garnished for other reasons such as taxes or student loans.

Older adults and divorce

Older adults in Virginia and throughout the country are about twice as likely to get a divorce as people their age were in the 1990s. Along with this higher divorce rate for older adults comes the complications of having their assets cut in half just as they are nearing retirement age. Many older adults may also have limited employment opportunities. Therefore, divorce can present a number of challenges for this demographic.

No need to go to court with an uncontested divorce

When you are getting ready to embark on the process of divorce, you may naturally be concerned about how acrimonious the process will be. After all, going to trial often fans the flames of frustration and anger, which, in turn, causes the divorce process to be lengthier and more arduous than what many really want it to be.
