3 types of listening that aid in divorce proceedings

If you have made the decision to end your marriage, you are probably dealing with some heavy, overwhelming emotions that can cause anger, frustration or even depression. As you navigate these difficult emotions, you must still be able to focus on your future and what you need to be successful. This may involve having a productive conversation with your spouse that is fact-based rather than emotion-based. If you understand the following types of listening, it may be easier to get your point across and get things settled quickly.

March is the most common month for divorce

It's come to light in recent years that March is the top month for filing for divorce. This was first based on anecdotal evidence from lawyers as well as tracking of search engines, but it is now supported by a University of Washington study conducted by sociology professor Julie Brines and doctoral candidate Brian Serafini.

Does your marriage qualify for an annulment?

While divorce rates in the United States hover around 50 percent, Kentucky falls in the top 10 list of states with the most divorces in the country. In 2015, the last year on record, 50.1 percent of the population was married while 13.2 percent were divorced, with 2.2 percent separated in Kentucky. Divorce is a word commonly used in society, but few understand the details of an annulment, which can also end a marriage.

Important financial steps to take when ending a marriage

While some marriages may end amicably, more often than not there is fighting and bitterness involved in the process, particularly when it comes to finances. Whether you have children or not, there are things such as debt and retirement plans to take into consideration when starting the divorce proceedings.
