With most people in the United States under some sort of “stay at home” or “shelter in place order,” families are spending more time with one another than ever before. While this is generally seen as a good thing, all of this time together may not be beneficial for some spouses. In fact, many people may realize they want a divorce when this is all over. Salt Lake City divorce attorney Emy Cordano is here to help you get through any aspect of what can be a complicated divorce process if you have kids, property, debts, assets and businesses or financials to divide.
What Coronavirus May Do To Marriages
What most people tout as a positive – stay at home orders – is not going to be a positive for everybody. According to news reports coming out of China, the first country to deal with COVID-19, divorce rates skyrocketed due to mandatory lockdowns.
This is not new. During most pandemics around the world, divorce rates tend to increase because of the number of times couples are forced to spend with one another. As the coronavirus pandemic drags on in this country, it may also place significant strains on a couple’s finances, another major contributor to divorce.
Domestic violence hotlines and emergency dispatchers are reporting an increase in calls as COVID-19 continues to reshape our lives. Many people, both women, and men are unable to get away from abusive spouses. If you need help now and can do so safely, call emergency services.
