Counties in Florida and Indiana Top the Nation in Divorce Rates

Florida and Indiana each have three counties that made the top ten list of highest divorce rates for the US. The Florida Counties are Monroe, Putnam, and Pinellas. Divorce experts point to a number of factors that could be contributing the high divorce rates, including the bad economy adding stress to already troubled marriages. Other reasons mentioned were the party atmosphere of the Keys that encourages immature behavior and even alcoholism. But some Florida residents pointed out the fact that many divorcees come to Florida to start new lives after divorcing in another state.

Whatever the reason, being the “divorce capital of the US” is hardly a distinction either Florida or Indiana welcomes. But if you are a resident of the Jacksonville area of Florida and you find that you would like to dissolve your marriage, please contact our firm for legal counsel.
