Fort Lauderdale, FL- In the realm of divorce there is hardly any good news, it’s a rare commodity, but there is some good news for married Floridians. A new recent survey from the Department of Health shows that the fewer couples in Florida divorced than previous years.
According to the Department of Health, in 2014, there were 54 divorces for every 100 marriages in Florida. WCTV reports that last year was the first time since the 30s that the states divorce rate has reached that low.
That is promising news, but it doesn’t change the fact that Florida’s divorce rate is still slightly higher than the national average.
As Florida’s divorce rate declined, the number of couples tying the knot increased moderately, breaking a long-running trend. According the WCTV, the rate of marriages in the Sunshine State ticked up by three-tenths of percent. That may not seem like, but it has changed a long-running trend of declining marriage rates.
If your marriage is on the rocks and are thinking about divorce, USAttorneys recommends you seek out a divorce law firm to help you through the divorce process. A couple must make numerous decisions about they will carry out their divorce, who will get what property and financial assets, and who gets custody of a couple’s child or children.
The first and probably the most important decision a couple must make is what divorce process they will benefit the most from. A couple can chose from mediation, collaborative divorce or take their case to divorce court. Each process has it pros and cons and should be chosen with the care. When you speak with an attorney, they will explain each process and help you decide which process works best considering the circumstances of your case and what issues you have to settle.
Our team of attorneys will also be instrumental in helping a couple resolve the issues they have over asset division and child custody. Money divides a couple in divorce as much as it does on marriage and for many couples, especially those without children, get locked in long-term battles over asset division. It’s not unusual for a couple to bicker over every asset, no matter how insignificant it may seem to others. A divorce lawyer understands that every asset and every issue is important and can serve as the voice of reason when emotions ride high. They strive to ensure you get an agreeable divorce settlement that both spouses can live with.
