Technology is playing an increasingly important role in Arizona divorce cases. People who are planning to end their marriage may want to take some steps to separate their digital lives and to prevent problems that could arise because of their online presences.
When going through a divorce, most people in Arizona and elsewhere expect to eventually fight over money. Divorcing individuals, accountants and family law attorneys are accustomed to dealing with traditional investments, pensions, property and savings accounts. However, Bitcoin and other forms of cryptocurrency are changing the game when it comes time to divide assets during the divorce.
According to data from the Census Bureau's 2017 American Community Survey, Arizona has a marriage rate of 47.3 percent. This is slightly below the national average of 48.2 percent of residents aged 15 and older who are married. Population figures were gleaned using a five-year average that ended in 2017. The divorce rate nationally has fallen since 2000, but at the same time, the marriage rate has also fallen.
Young marriages can be beautiful and full of life, but marriage can be difficult in your 20s or 30s. Many millennials who marry young struggle with having healthy relationships, leaving some to get divorced. If you find yourself in this situation, you may not know how to handle it.
Some Arizona couples who are 50 or older may be among those whose divorce rates are increasing according to the Pew Research Center. The divorce rate for this age group is more than twice as high as it was in 1990, and Pew researchers believe this may be because there are more second or third marriages in this age range. They are more vulnerable to divorce than first marriages.
An unraveling marriage leads to high anxiety, stress and sorrow. Even when it seems like both spouses agree that things have not gone well lately, they may have held onto hope.
