Is there a season for divorce filings?

There seems to be a season for almost everything, including divorce. A recent study conducted by researchers at the University of Washington indicates a seasonal pattern for divorce. The researchers studied divorce filings between 2001 and 2015. They found that the number of divorce filings peaked consistently in March and August, the periods after winter and summer holidays and festivities. 

Study claims divorce peak follows family vacation

Many families spend a great deal of time and energy planning a family vacation. Couples in New Hampshire who are struggling often view a vacation as a chance to iron out problems and potentially put their relationship on a more successful track. A recent study, however, appears to reveal that divorce filings increase following family vacations and holidays.

The emotional and mental impact of divorce on children

When parents decide to end their marriage, it can bring stress and anxiety upon the children. New Hampshire parents are aware of the potentially negative impact that divorce can have on their kids and typically desire to navigate the legal process in a way that alleviates unnecessary stress and protects the best interests of their children. Parents may be encouraged to know that there are things that they can do to help the youngest members of the family adjust to new changes.

Collaborative law and mediation can lead to calmer divorce

There is a common misconception that all divorces are bitter and contentious. While it is true that some couples may have a long battle, many in Manchester seek a more peaceful resolution. For those interested in their options with regards to alternative dispute resolution, as opposed to traditional litigation, the attorneys at Clark Law Offices are trained in collaborative law and mediation.

High Asset Divorce: Billionaire couple head to contentious split

When a couple in New Hampshire chooses to marry, they are likely thinking of their current happiness. However, planning for the future and considering all possibilities can prove beneficial. For example, creating a prenuptial agreement can help both people better understand their financial situation as well as make plans in case the marriage ends in divorce. Some sources claim that one high asset divorce taking place in another state will likely become contentious as both sides argue over an estate worth billions; the couple reportedly has no prenuptial agreement in place.
