Deciding when to file for divorce

The question of precisely when to file to divorce is important for many Maryland residents, with various benefits and drawbacks applying depending on the answer. Many individuals know they wish to file for divorce, but are unsure of whether it is right time to do so. They may ask themselves how the news will affect their families, their professional lives, their finances and other similar factors. During the holiday season, deciding when to submit a divorce petition can become even more difficult.

Divorce rate falls across United States

According to a new report from the U.S. Census Bureau, divorce rates across the country are gradually falling. In fact, the average rate of divorce has decreased by approximately 5 percent since 1996. The Census Bureau officials behind the report say that the costly nature of divorce may have been a significant cause, especially within the context of a recession-weakened economy. Since the economic downturn began, states with high unemployment have generally seen lower divorce rates.
