A look at who may be most likely to divorce

On Behalf of | Sep 18, 2017 | Divorce

According to data from the 2015 American Community Survey, those who have travel-intensive jobs or work in the nightlife industry are most likely to get a divorce. Conversely, those in Kentucky or elsewhere in the country are less likely to get divorced if they work as science or medical professionals. Additionally, the likelihood of a person getting divorced may also depend on how much he or she makes.

Some people feel that the divorce rates are likely lower for professions involving math and science because they require people who tend to be rational and level headed. Those who work as bartenders or flight attendants need flexibility, which may not coexist with a long-term relationship. It is important to note that when all professions are taken together, they tend to stay close to the national mean rate of divorce, which was 35 percent in 2015.

When a marriage comes to an end, there may be many issues to consider, such as who gets custody of the children and if either party is entitled to spousal support. An attorney may be helpful in helping an individual learn more about preserving parental rights or how to get maximum marital property.

An individual may make the divorce process easier by creating a prenuptial agreement. Such documents may determine who gets spousal support or how property is divided or eligible for division. A parenting plan may make it easier to solve child custody issues without the need to see a judge. An attorney may be able to review these documents before they become official or when a marriage ends to determine if they are still valid.
