Increasing rates of divorce in January

Having just gone through the holidays, citizens of Arizona may start experiencing a phenomenon that recurs every January: higher rates of divorce. In fact, the number of divorces increase during January to such a degree that the month has been nicknamed Divorce Month.

Dealing with a narcissistic coparent

Some parents in Arizona may have to deal with coparenting with a narcissist after a divorce. One woman received an email from her narcissistic husband saying that the children were afraid of her and did not want to go to her house. The woman initially ignored it because it was typical of the type of behavior she had become accustomed to from her ex-husband. It also was not unusual for him to behave in this way just before a court action, and she had filed for the fifth time to get him to pay the support he owed.

Social Security may still pay spousal benefits after divorce

Individuals in Arizona may be entitled to receive spousal benefits from the Social Security Administration even after they have divorced. The SSA will, in many cases, continue to acknowledge the relationship with a former spouse and continue to pay benefits based on the ex-spouse's work history. In order to qualify for such benefits, though, certain SSA requirements must be met.

Building a team to get through a divorce

For many Arizona residents, ending a marriage is an emotionally difficult process. However, the financial implications can also make it harder to get ahead once the divorce is finalized, especially if the process is drawn out. Regardless, getting the finances in order is critical in order for a person to be able to fully move on emotionally.

Special issues involved with "grey divorces"

When older couples in Arizona decide to get divorced, they may be forced to contend with special issues that younger spouses won't have to face. Because of the financial impacts of a separation, it is important for people who are near retirement to carefully consider what divorce might mean for them before they move forward.

Business ownership can add complexity to divorce

Women frequently face challenges during a divorce; for women in Arizona who own a business, there may be particular concerns concerning the future of their enterprises. Entrepreneurs heading for divorce should fully understand the value of their companies, whether it is owned as a sole proprietorship or as a joint venture with their former spouse.

Predicting divorce

There is no way to determine with complete accuracy which Arizona couples will get divorced. However, social scientists have determined that there are certain factors that can determine who may be more likely.
