When Michigan families break up, the divorce can be very difficult for the children even when the actual process is quick and the parents remain friendly. However, there are a few ways that parents can lessen the impact of the changes on the kids.

Study shows clear pattern in divorce filings

Michigan residents who file for divorce in August may have chosen the late summer to part from their spouse because they are following a 'domestic ritual" calendar. That was a suggestion of a study on divorce by University of Washington sociologists. The researchers found that divorces peak in August and March, periods that follow traditional family holidays.

Michigan residents who are considering relocating may be interested to learn that migration rates across the U.S. have dropped to almost half of what they were 50 years ago. According to research findings, one major contributing factor to decreased migration rates has been child custody.

The "divorce mortgage" could simplify elderly divorces

It is becoming increasingly common for older people in Michigan and across the U.S. to get divorced. These "gray divorces" involving people over the age of 50 have been on the rise throughout the past couple of decades. According to researchers from Bowling Green State University, gray divorce doubled between 1990 and 2014.
