IL divorce lawyerThere were over 2 million marriages across the United States in 2016. There were also over 800,000 divorces in 2016. Divorces happen all across the country for a variety of different reasons. Each couple has their own issues, which may lead to one person feeling the need to file for divorce. Overwhelmingly, the woman in the relationship is the one who files for divorce. In a study done by sociologist Michael Rosenfeld at Stanford University, it was found that 69% of divorces were initiated by women.


Why would women be the first to file for divorce in so many cases? Some of the possible reasons are listed below:

IL divorce lawyerUnfortunately, substance abuse is a common issue in Illinois. When one spouse is abusing alcohol or drugs, life for the other spouse can become very difficult. Oftentimes, substance abuse in a marriage leads to divorce. If you are divorcing a spouse with substance abuse problems, you may be wondering how it will affect your divorce. Read on to find out.

Child Custody

When determining child custody, a judge’s main goal will be to keep your child’s best interests in mind when designing an arrangement. If a parent abuses alcohol or drugs, they are unlikely able to provide their child with the high-quality care they deserve.

grey divorce, DuPage County divorce attorneysAmong most age groups, divorce rates have begun to level out. However, statistics show there has been an increase of late-life divorces, otherwise known as ‘grey’ or ‘silver’ divorces. Of course, divorce can happen at any age, and after any number of years of marriage, but experts believe there may be some unique factors contributing to the recent incline of divorces among those nearing or already of retirement age.

Children Have Left the Nest

Even today, many couples continue to stay together for their children. But what happens when the children have all grown up and you are still unhappy or unfulfilled? For many, the answer is to finally seek out that divorce. Of course, even adult children often want their parents to stay together. However, most “happy enough” but unfulfilled people feel their children no longer have any influence when it comes to making a decision about their relationship.

being a snoop, DuPage County family law attorney, Mevorah Law Offices LLC, snooping on your spouse, reasons for divorce, divorce trends, expectation of privacy, marriage and privacyA survey published by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) shows a significant increase in the use of evidence taken from smartphones and social networking websites in matrimonial litigation. Men and women have become more attached to their social media websites and smartphones, and matrimonial litigation has reflected this attachment with the increased use of this information being put under the microscope.

Not only has this information been exploited more often, but new spying gadgets and technology have made it easier for spouses to collect evidence prior to obtaining a divorce. The use of this type of spying and surveillance is generally invoked when there is a fear of infidelity or a concern of marital assets slowly disappearing into hidden accounts.

Researchers who study marriage dynamics and the causes of divorce have focused most of their efforts on studying the effects that physical or emotional cheating have on a marriage. However, until recently, very little research had been done to study the effects that “financial infidelity” had on relationships. Financial infidelity occurs when one partner hides what he or she does with his or her money from the other partner. It could take the form of spending money behind the partner’s back, maintaining separate credit cards or secret accounts, stashing away money, or borrowing from others without the partner’s knowledge.
