Are divorces in a far-flung city a sign of things to come?

There's no denying that the COVID-19 virus has drastically transformed the way that people live their lives in many areas of the world. In particularly hard-hit places, residents have been obliged to ride out the rising tide of infections inside their homes for many weeks.

Why is the divorce rate in Illinois so low?

The newest statistics indicate that Illinois has some of the lowest divorce rates in the nation. Data from the United States Census Bureau indicates that only 6.6% of marriages in Illinois end in divorce. Divorce rates in the nation are generally going down, but the national average population of divorced people is about 16%, by comparison.

Divorce tends to rise at the start of a new year

For Illinois residents who are confronted by the emotional upheaval of a potential divorce, it might seem counterintuitive for there to be certain times of the year when more people decide to move forward with the end of a marriage. However, it is statistically true that divorce happens more frequently at the start of a new year. There are many theories as to why this is the case. Regardless of why a person decides that their family dispute has reached a point of no return and they want to divorce, having legal assistance could be one of the most important factors in achieving a satisfactory resolution.

The difference between marital and separate property

Couples may not always think of property in terms of marital property and separate property. However, the distinction becomes especially important when a couple decides to divorce. The significance is a big one because generally only marital property is subject to the division process during divorce. Therefore, divorcing couples should know the difference between marital property and separate property so that they can develop a legal strategy that furthers their interests.
