January has been unofficially dubbed "divorce month." As the New Year begins many people decide to file for divorce or at least begin the process of filing a divorce. Those individuals who have gone back and forth about whether or not to file for divorce often decide that January is the time to do it. Why is January so popular? There are lots of reasons. I have clients that believe that the New Year is a time for a fresh start. Others vow that a time for change is now. Some clients reach out after they have "stuck out" the holiday season, particularly when children are involved. These clients decide that as the New Year begins they are ready to begin the divorce process.
Traditionally, the New Year is accompanied by the idea of a clean slate. Hence, the New Year's resolution? As cliche as that sounds; for those who have contemplated or have made up their mind to divorce, the New Year seems like an appropriate time to begin divorce proceedings. I certainly understand that the idea of a clean slate, a new beginning, or to resolve to have a better year than last is attractive. For some that includes obtaining a divorce.
