As we previously mentioned, Orange County, California has one of the highest divorce rates in the country. In fact, it’s estimated that thirty-three new individuals begin divorce proceedings in O.C. every single day. So why are divorce rates so high?

For starters, the economy has markedly improved since The Great Recession, and many couples who delayed their planned separation or divorce due to financial constraints, now have the ability to proceed, which has created an uptick in filings in recent years. But still, California has an average divorce rate of 60%, whereas the national average is still hovering around 50%.Cultural trends have undoubtedly played a role as well. Divorce is no longer considered “taboo” as it once was in the past. Browse any grocery store shelf and you will see the latest Hollywood “A-List” couple filing for divorce. With 50% of marriages ending in divorce, many people will view it as something everyone else is doing, thus lessoning it’s perceived impact.

However, it’s important to know that divorces can create a significant mark on the lives of those involved. In California, there are many details that couples must know before ending their marriage.
