We all hope when we make our marriage vows that we will get our happy ever after, but the truth is this is not always the case. In the USA it is now suggested that 40-50% of first marriages end in divorce, with the rate even higher for second and subsequent marriages. In the UK the rate is similar at around 42% of marriages ending up in the divorce courts.
The 2020 situation with Covid 19 and the subsequent lockdown, has unfortunately made divorce inevitable for many couples who may have been teetering on the brink of separation before they were pushed together for extremely long periods of uncomfortable time. Experts are predicting that one of the far reaching results of people having to lockdown as families is that there will be a rise in divorces in 2021 and 22. According to a BBC report there has been a rise of 25% in the number of people looking at the divorce page on the Citizens Advice webpage. Clearly the exacerbation of being forced to spend long periods of time together with no respite of leaving home for work, has placed some marriages that were already rocky into a place of no return.
Divorce is never nice, it is an admittance that you tried something but it failed and that the love that you had so much hope for has faded, or has not been enough to sustain a relationship long term. Divorce can also bring out the worst in people and this only becomes more difficult if there are children involved. The longer and uglier your divorce gets, the more your children will be affected. That is why it is always best to go above and beyond to make the divorce as easy as it can possibly be for your children.
Thankfully a divorce does not always have to be messy. If you and your spouse can reach agreements concerning property division, child support, visitation, and all other issues arising from the marriage, then divorce experts like Birmingham AL divorce attorney The Harris firm may be able to get you a cheap and quick, uncontested divorce so you can part with the least amount of discomfort and heartbreak for your children. These divorces are for a flat fee (they cost even less if there are no minors involved and it is just about the couple and property/finance.) The process involves mostly paperwork as long as the couple involved have agreed on every single marital issue and do not need the courts to be involved in any way.
The sooner you can close your case, the faster everyone can move on.
Divorce can either tear a family apart or it can bring it closer together. Don’t stay in a relationship if it is making you miserable. An unhappy marriage cannot be hidden from your kids; in fact, it can damage them. Divorce can be the best thing for a family because it can allow you to focus on being a great parent, rather than being in a bad relationship.
