Study names Spokane divorce capital of U.S.

Clearly, divorce is much more common than it once was in the United States, with a large percentage of marriages ultimately being dissolved. On the other hand, since the 1970s, divorce rates on a nationwide basis have actually been declining. Even so, one out of every 10 people in the country is a divorced person who has not remarried. According to a recent study, more than 30 percent of divorced men and over 50 percent of divorced women are not interested in being married again.

Mediation could help you plan for an uncontested divorce

Securing a divorce is often a protracted and expensive process. Chances are good that you and your spouse may not agree on the terms of your separation and divorce. Issues like the division of assets and debts, as well as the custody arrangements and parenting plan for any minor children, can result in a protracted court battle between spouses. However, if you and your spouse could potentially come to terms without a judge making those decisions for you, mediation could be an option.

Remaining amicable will ease the divorce process in Washington

While Washington does allow for contested dissolution proceedings, it is one of the states that understand that sometimes marriages or partnerships just come to an end. Most dissolved marriages occurring in the state are "no fault" divorces. In this type of proceeding, the petitioning party alleges that the martial bond is "irretrievably broken," and if the other party does not dispute the allegation, the judge will order the divorce after a 90-day waiting period.
