No-fault divorce law statistics and the impact on children

Posted by attorney Howard Lewis

According to the study conducted by Amanda Honeycutt, it was found that children whose parents went for no fault divorce grounds were less likely to reside with both their parents in future.

Also, due to no fault divorce law, the economical situation of the women became worst owing to no spousal support or child support. In 1986, a study was conducted with the conclusion that 34 percent of the divorced females having child custody were living below the poverty line. This economic condition affects the children a lot. Due to this children have no faith in the institution of marriage, increase in suicide cases amongst children, no respect for the society and so on.
