How many divorces take place each year?

If you are thinking about the idea of divorce, you may be worried about how your life and your loved ones will be affected by this decision. Moreover, you may feel alone, or you could be struggling with the emotional side of this major life change. You should not feel alone, however, since many couples do decide to end their marriages every year. There are many reasons why marriages fall apart, and nobody should stay in a marriage that is toxic or put their life on hold when things are not working out with their spouse.

According to data that has been provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were over 827,000 couples who filed for divorce in 2016 out of 44 states and the District of Columbia. During the same year, more than 2.2 million couples were also married in these states, many of whom will ultimately decide to bring the marriage to an end as well.

Ultimately, it does not matter how many people file for divorce when it comes to your life. What matters most is making the right decision with respect to your circumstances and your child’s future. Once you have decided that moving forward with your divorce is necessary, you should go over all your options carefully. For example, you may want to think about the best time to file the petition and some of the family law issues that will arise, such as child custody, paying or receiving child support and the division of marital property.
