Economy complicates divorce and child custody

A recent survey has found that the weak U.S. economy is creating difficulties for couples seeking a divorce, and parents trying to abide by child custody arrangements. 


Overall, 85% of respondents to the latest survey of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers reported an increase in divorce settlement complications over housing debt during the past three years, while only 14% found no change.


In addition, more than half of respondents (53%) noted an increase in child custody cases involving relocation requests being filed by parents who are finding it necessary to move. Only 21% of the attorneys have seen an increase in child custody relocation requests actually being granted by the courts, while 66% have said there has been no change in the number of approvals over the past three years.
