Online activity and divorce

46640061_S.jpgWhen a Missouri couple decides to get a divorce, there is always a chance that things could get messy. While finances and marital property will be scrutinized, it is becoming increasingly more likely that electronic data may also be assessed. This electronic data may include tweets, texts, emails and social media posts.

More older people getting a divorce

53958391_S.jpgOlder couples in Missouri may be getting divorced at a higher rate than they were in earlier decades. In 2014, it was twice as common for people at or over the age of 50 to get a divorce than it was 24 years earlier. The rate was even higher for people older than 65. Experts theorize that divorce is more socially acceptable than it was in the past, so when children grow up and leave home and couples find they have little in common, it may be the next step.

Some of these divorced parents even find it beneficial to go through mediation.
