New York Divorce Rates

Did you know that Manhattan divorce rates are less than other states?


Did you know that Manhattan divorce rates are less than other states? Yes, that’s right, according to the U.S. Census Bureau government statistics. New Yorkers, it turns out, despite having stressful high-intensity jobs, tend to get divorced less. In fact, the New York divorce rate is even less than the national rate. By comparison, other big states such as Texas, are dubbed as statistically higher rates of divorce. 

Still, New Yorkers do get divorced like in other states. Two high-profile Big Apple divorces included Bethany Frankel from “Real Housewives of New York City”, and actress Mary-Kate Olsen from “Full House.”    

Some common reasons why people get divorced include: financial problems, infidelity, physical and emotional abuse, simply losing attraction over time or falling out of love, constantly arguing and disagreements, poor communication, less physical intimacy, not spending enough quality time together, not being on the same page about kids, sudden addictions, and more. 

If you do end up getting a divorce or there may be the possibility to salvage the relationship "if only" there was a way to protect yourself financially, then it is critical that you choose a great family law attorney familiar with both divorce and prenuptial agreements in your area.

Find one that has both the skills and experience (and results) to service your needs. One with direct experience in the region you’re from and that you feel comfortable with. After all, family law can be very complicated and sensitive, and can have a huge lasting impact on your financial and family structure.
