While it can’t be proved that increasing oil prices directly affects the divorce rate, it is no secrete that financial problems is one of the biggest factors contributing to the high divorce rate in California. Over and over again, I see how financial difficulties puts a strain on a marriage. Usually, arguments over finances spill over onto other issues causing a couple to argue more and with more intensity.
Clearly no one can deny that a slowing economy, an increase in bankruptcy, and an increase in foreclosures has a correlation to the divorce rate in California. While one can argue on whether financial difficulties leads to a divorce, or whether it only brings to light issues that already exist, no one can deny the impact that it has on a marriage.
Similarly, financial strains also impacts the divorces process itself. During a slow economy, many divorcing couples want to minimize the fees they will incur in a divorce. The couple is more amicable to mediation, uncontested divorces, cheap divorces, or having one attorney do all the work for both sides. This can be a great option for couples that can put aside their differences for a common good, preserving the community property and dividing it between themselves as cheaply as possible.
Our firm handles many uncontested cases. This is a fast, economic, and less stressful way to dissolve a marriage. It also helps the couple preserve as much of the assets they have acquired as possible by greatly reducing the cost of the divorce.
