As many Pennsylvania residents who have gone through one likely know, divorce is not only emotionally difficult but can also be very expensive. While there is a common perception that lawyers are responsible for the high cost of divorce, the truth is that couples have a great deal of control over the cost of the process. Essentially, the more quickly a couple can agree on the issues in their divorce, such as alimony, child support, child custody and property division, the less the divorce will cost.
According to some within the divorce industry, January to March sees more divorces than other times of the year. Although some dispute that assertion, this time of year still has the reputation of having the highest rate of divorce. Whether people in Blue Bell are seeing a similar rise remains to be seen, but for those individuals considering divorce, it may be time to look for a family law lawyer who can help guide a couple through a collaborative divorce.
