Abstract:This study tries to answer the question if self-efficacy has an influence on the relationship between dependency and the need for informational and procedural support in marriage disputes. During a divorce the dependency and self-efficacy have an influence on the control that people feel they have over the situation. This control influences the need for informational and procedural support. This study also focuses on the dependency asymmetry, the participants perceive themselves as being more dependent on their partners than their partners are dependent on them. We expect that as the dependency asymmetry increases, the need for informational and procedural support increases, but particularly when self-efficacy is low. A survey among 378 participants who wanted to divorce or were in the middle of a divorce process showed that dependency indeed had a significant relation with the need for informational and procedural support. There was a significant influence of self-efficacy on this relation. However, interaction between dependency asymmetry, self-efficacy and the need for informational and procedural support was not significant.
