A divorce, just like marriage is an unforgettable event in a person’s life. Marriage however entails happiness and promises never-ending bliss and romance. Divorce, on the other hand, is the termination of all these. There are a lot of things that could contribute to such and make a once happy marital bond turn into a toxic and unhealthy one.
Divorce just doesn’t happen by accident. Factors such as lack of communication, finances, feelings of being constrained, trust issues, unmet expectations, abuse and irreconcilable differences regarding beliefs, culture and religion make divorce happen. In a marriage, whether it has been a year or 50 years, problems really have the propensity to build up over time. Without proper communication and willingness from both parties for the relationship to work, marriage dissolution is very likely.
In the United States, approximately 2,400 divorces occur every day as per the US Census Bureau. Additionally, eight years is the average length of marriages that usually conclude in divorce. Because divorce is a legal event, its proceedings are recorded, secured and archived by the government. In Hall County, Georgia, these registers are stored in the state’s primary repository of vital records – the Department of Public Health. Divorce records that are available at this office are those that occurred since June 1952. For divorce records dating back prior to that, requests must be addressed locally to the Probate Court as it is the Probate Judge who issues the verdict, finalizes the proceeding and grants approval for the divorce filed.
