Divorce less common in New Jersey than other states

Based on recent research, close to 50% of marriages throughout the United States end up not lasting. However, divorce is more prevalent in certain states, whereas it is less common in states like New Jersey. Here is a glimpse at why divorce is less common in certain areas and more common in others.

For starters, some states feature more stressful situations than others do. For instance, in some areas, more people face issues with money or employment, and these problems, coupled with family drama, can quickly take a toll on a marriage. College debt is an especially major financial problem these days, so it may come as no surprise that states with more of this debt tend to also experience more divorce.

According to researchers, a state's level of safety also impacts its rate of divorce. States where crime is more prevalent usually feature more marital breakups. Researchers also found out recently that, in states where people wait longer to get married, divorce is not as common.

Figuring out how to go about divorce can certainly be overwhelming and thus frustrating. Fortunately, though, if two divorcing spouses are willing to resolve their differences outside of court when addressing such matters as spousal support and property division, they can save themselves money, time and stress. If they cannot do this, they have no choice but to go to divorce trial, where a judge will decide the outcomes of these matters. Either way, an attorney can help a divorcing individual in New Jersey to pursue the most personally beneficial outcome.
