PHILADELPHIA, PA, February 26, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Through their representation in family law, the associates at Ruben Law Firm San Francisco
have faced many challenging divorce cases. While the law firm understands that the divorce process is often a painful, expensive and drawn-out one, it can prove necessary in many cases where a marriage or family situation is unhealthy. Despite this necessity, many Americans are starting to argue whether or not these legal processes need to become more difficult to obtain a divorce.
A new article from The Huffington Post focuses on the divorce reform debate, highlighting the arguments recently raised by blogger Vicki Larson and Beverly Willett, a writer and attorney who co-chairs the Coalition for Divorce Reform. Willett posits that no-fault divorce laws have allowed individuals to end a marriage without paying any regard for the other parties involved. Willett states, "Divorce couldn't get much easier. America's no-fault divorce laws allow spouses to unilaterally walk out on their families for any reason."
In the article, Larson takes an position that Ruben Law Firm San Francisco favors--no-fault divorce laws allow for environments and situations which are not only more satisfying and safe for the couple, but for children as well. Larson argues, "There's nothing me-centered about no-fault divorce laws. Let's not forget that before the laws were enacted, many people and their children were stuck in unhealthy, dangerous marriages."
While many Huffington Post readers agree with Larson's opinion, Ruben Law Firm San Francisco notes that while there may not be a need to reform divorce, the ease of obtaining a marriage license should be questioned in order to prevent future splits. In a recent press statement, Ruben Law Firm San Francisco responds to the debate, "No-fault divorce is humane--getting a divorce should not be more difficult. Ending a marriage is already so tough to deal with when considering emotional and financial ties, especially if there are children involved as well as significant assets. Realistically, it should be more difficult for people to get married and have children--that would provide a significant decrease in divorce rates."
While divorce reform is in question, this legal firm notes that the difficulty of ending a marriage should not be the sole reason one decides to not pursue a split. Ruben Law Firm San Francisco is one legal practice that strives to make the divorce process less complicated, as its attorneys strive "to do their best to make the divorce process as smooth as possible" and to provide complete support for their clients.
