More women paying alimony and child support than ever before

Posted on May 15th, 2012 No Comments

According to U.S. lawyers, more women are paying alimony and child support to their ex-husbands than ever before. Many are claiming that this is because women are rising in rank not only in their careers but in society as well.

While the divorce rates have hovered between 46 and 53 percent for decades, the outcomes of these divorces have significantly changed. Since women are receiving higher degrees and making more money, this affects what they owe in a divorce.

According to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, 56 percent of U.S. attorneys say they have seen an increase in mothers who are paying child support in the past three years, and 47 percent say they’ve seen an increase in woman paying alimony.
