A British study has found that as financial stresses increases, so do divorces. Even here in America, that is probably true. I see the current economic crisis that has hit the globe as one that will result in many people thinking about filing for divorce in the coming months, especially in January, right after the holidays. However she feels that while many more people will be thinking about it, fewer people will be able to afford it – especially those at the higher end of the economic spectrum with more to lose by way of assets. such as stocks, real estate and other investment properties. People in this bracket may find it advantageous to wait till the crisis passes before filing, just because they may want to improve their standing once distribution of the marital assets is completed.
