“Previously, the judge made at least an effort to tell couples that the government didn`t want them to divorce, but now in Mexico City that intention has changed and it seems that the government wants families to separate.” Stevenson B (2007) The Impact of Divorce Laws on Marriage-Specific Capital. J Labor Econ 25:75-94 Stevenson B, Wolfers J (2006) Negotiating in the Shadow of the Law: Divorce Laws and Family Distress. Q J Econ 121:267-288 In a marriage or divorce, you need at least your birth certificates. If you are a foreigner, these birth certificates must be apostilled (if you are from the United States or another country that is party to the Hague Convention) or legalized by a Mexican consulate (if you are from Canada or another country that is not part of the Hague Convention). Once you`ve received these certifications, you`ll need to have them translated here in Mexico by a state-certified translator. It was argued that divorce rates should be measured by the number of marriages, not by population. However, as information on marriages is not readily available, this definition of divorce rate has been generally accepted. The economic literature suggests that government intervention to correct externalities is not necessary when ownership laws are clear and transaction costs are low, as parties meet and negotiate a private agreement until they find an effective solution. On the basis of this assumption, effective negotiation has been extended to matrimonial decisions, and the claim is that if the spouse who wishes to leave the marriage can negotiate cheaply with the spouse who wishes to remain, the only relevant factor for the dissolution of the union is negotiated compensation, regardless of the distribution of property rights or legal responsibility (Becker et al. 1977). The argument is made in Becker (1991, p. 331): “A husband and wife would both agree to divorce if they both expect to be better divorced. Although divorce may seem more difficult when mutual consent is required than when both can divorce at will on their own, the frequency and frequency of divorce should be similar to these and other rules when couples considering divorce can easily negotiate with each other.

This statement is a special case of Coase`s theorem (1960) and a natural extension of the argument (…) that people marry if and only if they both expect to be better off than their best alternatives. Becker`s (1991) theoretical reasoning along the lines of Coase`s theorem (1960) leads to the conclusion that, regardless of the legal system, only ineffective marriages would dissolve and effective divorces would take place. Therefore, changes to the divorce rules are not expected to affect the total number of divorces and the adoption of a no-fault divorce regime is not expected to affect divorce rates. Unlike other works where an important topic is the classification of the State`s divorce law, which may come to different conclusions depending on the definition used, this is not a problem in the Mexican case. Although no-fault divorce and unilateral divorce correspond to different situations, according to the reforms adopted in Mexico, each State that has eliminated the grounds for divorce has simultaneously included unilateral divorce in its legislation. The easiest way. — The authors of the law could have saved themselves a lot of scratching of heads and feathers. Because their work was practically finished with floor No. 19 or incompatibility. Whatever their real reasons, nine-tenths of the spouses who argue offer incompatibility as an excuse for the desire to separate. Contentious cases, as well as by mutual agreement, are almost all dealt with by mail: it is not necessary for the plaintiff or defendant to appear before the judge in person.

With a power of attorney, the divorce specialist can handle all necessary legal disputes. 8. The Embassy cannot advise on the laws of the respective U.S. states regarding the recognition of out-of-state divorces. It is desirable that the person consult a lawyer in his or her own state who is familiar with international law and who could indicate whether a divorce deemed legal in Mexico will be recognized in that state and/or elsewhere in the United States – and by the federal government, whether it were to be a question of federal benefits (e.g. social security, Armed Forces or Veterans Benefits) that require the submission of personal records, particularly if a marriage is to be entered into between one of the parties after divorce. Population weighting to correct for heteroscedasticity to obtain efficient estimators relies on the strong assumption of homoscedastic and independent error terms for individuals within the state. However, if individual error terms share a state-level error component, the unweighted state mean error terms are closely homosquedastics. In this scenario, the use of WLS would reinforce any existing heteroscedasticity, and the estimation of MCOs would be more efficient than the WLS estimate. Large discrepancies between the results obtained with WLS and OLS can be an indication of a functional form or a poor specification of the model. Therefore, it is also important to make and report COM based estimates, without weighting. Similarly, given the nature of the dependent variable used in this context, a divorce rate always positive, it is possible to take into account various functional specifications such as the logarithm of divorce rates.

In general, results based on changes in assumptions for functional forms are not expected to be highly sensitive to these changes, which would corroborate previous results and provide convincing evidence for the key findings of the analysis. Mexican divorce is mentioned in Jack Kerouac`s book On the Road. “If you can get me a Juarez divorce as quickly as you did for a friend of mine, I`d like to get one through you. Since the divorce rate is the sum of divorces per 1000 inhabitants, the error term represents the sum of all individual disturbances in a state (left( s right)) at time (left( t right)) divided by the population, resulting in heteroscedasticity.
