Spy Technology Playing a Part in Modern Divorce

People who are going through a divorce are resorting to using modern technology to spy on their former partners and many of these techniques are illegal. Spy technology is a readily available and inexpensive option to people who want to gather information on a spouse and privacy no longer exists in 2012. As soon as someone thinks they have been betrayed, they can start to gather evidence to support this proposition. The person who has been scorned is not thinking logically and is going to be out for revenge against his or her former spouse.

Statistics Shed Light on Marriage and Divorce

The U.S. Census Bureau has released statistics on its American Survey Data on Marriage and Divorce, and the numbers are very interesting. Divorce rates are higher in the south, while residents of northeastern states had lower rates for marriage and divorce than other parts of the country. Men are more willing to remarry than women following a divorce, while more women are widows than men become widowers. Another interesting figure was that there are more people in the 25-34 age group who are unmarried than married. Keep in mind that these numbers represent real people.

Mentally Disabled May be Soon Able to Divorce in Illinois

The Illinois Supreme Court has ruled that the state ban on people with mental disabilities or their guardians getting a divorce is “no longer appropriate.” The law applied to individuals with severe brain damage, as well was adults with Alzheimer’s disease or mental illness. The court found a blanket ban on all divorce actions was not appropriate, but that case-by-case hearings should be conducted to determine whether the divorce was in the disabled person’s best interests. The ruling is a step in the right direction for equal rights for people with this type of disability.

Texas Divorce Records Available Online

Online Texas divorce records can be used to verify whether a person has legally ended his or her marriage. Without this confirmation, a person cannot plan a wedding to a new partner, and it’s a good idea to make sure the last marriage was officially concluded before entering a new one. To get the information, you will need to know the full name of at least one person on the marriage record. Other details, such as the date and place of the marriage can help to narrow down the search. Taking the time to confirm the divorce is final is a good idea before saying,”I do” again.
