Just the Facts on Divorce

Here at the Clute Institute, we stick to the facts and don’t let emotions get in the way. That rule applies to everything, including emotionally heavy subject matter like death, war, and divorce. The fact is, these things exist, and we need to have a way of analyzing them to figure out why they happen and what we can do to best avoid them in the future.

That being said, here are some facts about divorce:

  • While the divorce rate has lowered from its 1980’s high of over 5 divorces per 1,000 people to around 3 divorces per 1,000, it’s estimated that the divorce rate for all marriages is still 50%
  • For first-time marriages, 41% end in divorce. For second marriages, the statistic jumps to 60%. For third marriages, it jumps once again to 73%.
  • For first-time marriages that end in divorce, the marriage typically lasts around 8 years
  • The wife is far more likely to initiate divorce, with women initiating proceedings 75% of the time
  • Divorce rates have more than doubled for people aged 50 or older over the last twenty years

With this knowledge in hand, we know that divorce is not at all a rare occurrence, and every one of use knows at least one person who has gone threw a divorce or grew up in a household where a divorce occurred, if we did not experience this ourselves. The reasons for divorce typically come down to a lack of commitment, too much strife, infidelity, or a lack of reasonable expectations in our relationships, no doubt influenced at least in part by unrealistic portrayals of love and marriage in the media.

If you ever find yourself in a marriage whose end is clearly in sight and about to add to the divorce statistics, you need to know exactly what it is you need to do. The law, as always, is enigmatic and impenetrable to those who have not trained for years in how to interpret it, which means that finding a solid attorney is the logical first step to protect yourself and your family. A good attorney can mean the difference between being out in the cold without a shirt and living at least reasonably comfortably in your new single lifestyle.

Protecting Yourself With A Competent Immigration Lawyer

Here at Clute we pride ourselves on reporting on just the facts when it comes to recommending and reviewing local businesses. When it comes to the difficult and contentious issue of immigration law, we are not going to delve into the ethics and politics of the subject that so seems to plague our nation today.

The fact is, immigration law exists, and it is a complicated and ever-changing maze. There are good, honest people who are in need of legal experts and lawyers who know what they’re doing to ensure that they are following the law and will not get into any unneeded trouble with law enforcement. This goes for those non-citizens that are in our country legally and business owners who are hoping to hire those workers that may not be citizens.

The consequences of not following these laws is just too great to leave to pure chance. You need professionals working at your behest who are diligent, caring, and communicative to successfully stay out of the unforgiving and long-reaching gaze of the law.

To these ends, today we’re profiling a local law firm that specializes in every facet of immigration law: acquiring green cards and visas of all kinds, establishing a pathway to citizen ship, and providing employers with the appropriate documentation that will allow them to work with noncitizen workers. K Nair Law is the premier immigration law firm of Orange County, providing dozens of clients the conscientious care that is so necessary in the world of immigration law.

Kiran Nair, the owner and name holder of the firm, has been working as an attorney for the better part of 15 years, starting off as a criminal defense lawyer for a primarily noncitizen client base. Through her work in criminal defense, she realized she could help more people avoid the rigors of criminal case hearings by providing them with competent legal guidance as an immigration attorney in Orange County, and thus started the K Nair Law Firm.

We realize that, as non-lawyers, it’s easy for use to provide a recommendation based on the limited work we’ve seen but it may not hold as much weight as another profession with more readily observable results, like a landscaping firm. If you are looking for a weightier referral, look no further than the firm’s Yelp page, where Meghan T., a fellow attorney, provides the following observation:
