Divorce more common after winter holidays

Alabama divorce lawyers and other experts say that the turn of the year is an increasingly popular time to seek a divorce. There are a number of factors that contribute to this surge in divorce filings, but many of them are related to the surrounding holiday season. Lawyers and even Google searches bear out the claim that divorce is more common in January. In fact, even as overall divorce rates drop, an annual spike in January continues to point to the month's reputation as "Divorce Month."

Why prenuptial agreements are worth discussing

While weddings are largely seen as romantic events, it is also important to understand the financial side of marriage. Ideally, those getting married in Alabama or any other state will discuss financial and other important matters before the wedding takes place. With a prenuptial agreement, a married couple gains more control over how their assets and liabilities are divided in the event that the marriage doesn't work out. Absent a prenuptial agreement, a judge could decide how assets and liabilities are divided.

Unique problems women face during divorce

Men and women in Alabama face challenges when going through a divorce. However, the challenges that women face during the divorce process can be different than those faced by men. This may be due in part to differences in the median income level between women and men. Women in the United States make, on average, 81% of what men make. However, in a divorce, women are awarded custody nearly 90% of the time in the United States.
