There is a high rate of divorce in Florida, but why? There are some things that can explain it. For example, the stress of employment and expenses plays a role in families’ lives, and that stress can push a marriage over the edge. Americans feel anxiety about the political climate and a fear of violence, too, both of which can cause problems among spouses.
In Florida’s case, the high divorce rate actually causes more stress among the population. With so many factors at play, it’s important to look into mediation before you decide to get a divorce. It’s sometimes possible to work with a mediator to resolve conflicts in the home and to reinforce the integrity of your marriage. If not, divorce is still an option you have in the future.
If you do decide to get a divorce, mediation can again help with the division of assets and other divorce-related issues. For example, you may need assistance determining child custody arrangements or want to work with a mediator to talk to your spouse about dividing your assets fairly.
When you allow yourself to get too emotionally involved in a divorce, conflict can slow the divorce down. Instead, look at this as a business decision and make the right choices for keeping you comfortable now and in the future. Your financial future may depend on your decisions, so it’s wise to talk to your attorney about what you need and to learn about how the law may affect your case. With the right support, you can know what to expect out of your divorce.
