Divorce rate has steadily declined since 1990s

It has long been said that half of all marriages end in divorce in the United States.

Objectivity important in divorce mediation in Pennsylvania

Anytime a business owner makes decisions based upon emotion rather than logic or reasoning, he or she risks making the wrong decisions, which could lead to future financial problems.

Financial considerations important in divorce in Pennsylvania

Marriage is about more than just love; finances can play a significant role in the success of the institution. Just as the health of a marriage can be dependent upon a couple's financial situation, the financial outcome of a divorce can have a huge impact on the futures of the former spouses. Unfortunately, poor decisions commonly made during the divorce process often result in Pennsylvania divorcees suffering financial woes for years afterward. This is especially common in couples who are divorcing after spending many years together.

It is common for married couples that are having relationship problems to separate from one another without actually filing a divorce. This is what Bruce Jenner and Kris Jenner had been doing to deal with their marital problems.

Now, there will be no more waiting, since Kris Jenner has finally filed for divorce in court.
