Divorces Are More Amicable When Money Is Tight

By Sheryl Rentz on April 10, 2009

Family law attorneys across the United States are noticing that divorces are more amicable these days because of the tight economy and the escalating costs of fighting over the house or custody of children. Couples are actually arriving at a compromise, according to this news report. Official sources of data have not yet recorded this decline in hotly contested divorces.

Consider the average difference in costs. When a divorce is amicable and both parties arrive on an agreement, attorneys charge a flat fee of between $500 and $1,000. But taking a divorce case to the jury can cost thousands of dollars or more. It is very expensive to fight for property or kids. The best way to settle a divorce in Pennsylvania is to try and agree on a fair compromise. However, in some cases, it is hard to reach an agreement when one person is being tough or unreasonable. The divorce rate in the United States in 2007 was 3.6 per 1,000 people.

If you believe your marriage is headed for a divorce, it would be in your best interest to contact an experienced Pennsylvania divorce lawyer. If you want to get the best possible result for your case, you need the quality representation of someone who can really help you. Divorces, or even dissolutions of partnerships, can have legal ramifications and could cost you financially for the rest of your life. A number of important details that could have lifelong consequences are negotiated during a divorce proceeding. These include, but are not limited to, child custody, child visitation, child support, alimony and division of property and assets.
