Each state has its own divorce laws. So, changes in one state’s divorce laws generally do not directly affect what divorce in another state is like. However, it can still be worth keeping an eye out on what sorts of changes other states are making when it comes to divorce. For one, they can point to larger legal trends that are occurring on a given divorce issue. Also, a change in one state might eventually lead to other states considering a similar change.
Divorcing couples vary greatly in their circumstances. This includes in how long they’ve been married. Some couples end up entering a divorce after decades of being married. This is a situation many divorces of older couples, sometimes referred to as gray divorces, can involve.
Divorce negotiations can be incredibly complex proceedings. All manner of things can have the potential to play a role in such negotiations. In today’s digital world, this includes digital data, such as a person’s social media activity or their electronic communications. There are situations in which such data might potentially touch on some of the key issues in the divorce, like property division or child custody.
