Is Online Dating Lowering Divorce Rates?

Posted on: November 10th, 2017 by admin

MarketWatch recently published an article about the impact that online dating websites, such as Tinder and OKCupid, are helping to lower the number of divorces. For many, this flies in the face of everything they believe about online dating and its impact on divorce numbers. Therefore, how is online dating lowering divorce rates instead of increasing them?

Why Is Online Dating Lowering Divorce Rates?

The general consensus is that online dating has led to the development of a hookup culture and the demise of the classic dinner date. However, according to a study by a professor from the University of Essex and a professor from the University of Vienna, online dating has actually led to stronger marriages, more people dating people from outside their social circles and more interracial couples.

Reportedly, the reason online dating is being credited for the development of stronger marriages and the lowering of divorce rates is because it has expanded people’s dating pools. In the past, people met through friends of friends, at work or at school. Therefore, they generally only dated people from inside their current social circles. Online dating allows people to date people that are not like them, which sometimes helps create very happy unions.

As part of their study, the professors ran over 10,000 simulations of randomly generated societies and according to the results, couples in those societies that met online only broke up 5.9 percent of the time. However, couples in those societies that met offline broke up 7.6 percent of the time.

At Hoover Krepelka, LLP, our experienced divorce lawyers have been helping people file for divorce for decades.

Why do I Need a Divorce Attorney?

Hiring an Attorney is Optional

Your Attorney is on Your Side

Is there such thing as a simple divorce in California?

Posted on: April 21st, 2016 by admin

When one refers to simple divorce in California, they are most likely talking about an uncontested divorce. Uncontested divorces mainly occur where the parties do not have significant assets or children or in cases where the parties can mutually agree upon the division of debt, assets, and child custody and support if children are involved. Even if you can agree on the terms of a divorce, it is in your best interest to consult with a divorce attorney before starting a divorce in California.

Division of Property in a Divorce in California

California is a community property state. As such, all assets acquired during a marriage are considered community property unless it is by gift, inheritance, or agreement. Those contemplating marriage are free to enter a premarital agreement whereby the division of property in the event of a divorce is decided in advance and enforceable in dissolution proceedings. It is best where parties can agree on a division of the marital property as it saves the expense of a trial on the issue of the division of property. No all parties can agree and not all parties are fully aware of their rights under the law. If you are considering divorce and there will be a division of property it is wise to consult with a divorce attorney who will explain your rights.

Division of a Business in a Divorce in California

If you are considering a divorce and either you or your spouse own a business, you should definitely consult with a knowledgeable divorce lawyer. The laws concerning the division of a business in a dissolution of marriage in California are complicated. The calculation of the value of the business and what, if any, portion of the business is community property to be included in the division of property.

Spousal Support in a Divorce in California

Depending on the length and roles of the parties, spousal support may be awarded to one party. Whether your spouse is looking to you for support or whether you are requesting that the other party pay you spousal support, you should consult with an experienced divorce attorney who will discuss what, if any, support may be due.

Child Custody and Support in a Divorce in California

Child custody and support are decisions best made by the parties involved. When there is a disagreement in the custody and support, the court will make a decision and it may not be favorable or desirable to either party. If you cannot agree with your spouse on a timeshare with the children and any support payments, you should contact a divorce attorney that will explain your rights and evaluate your circumstances to give you an idea of what you may owe or receive in child support under different timeshare conditions.
