Increase in divorces shows recovering economy

Economists are saying that one simple way to see that the economy is improving is the nationwide increase in divorce filings. In 2008, divorce rates began to see significant decreases but have started to increase back to the levels seen before the economic recession. During the recession, the nation’s divorce rate fell by 7 percent. Recently, divorce filings have been up by as much as 15 percent in some places.

Economists and family law attorneys have also noticed that since the recession more and more couples considering divorce are turning to mediation first. Divorce mediation serves as a middle ground between going to court and handling issues with your spouse on your own.
