January shows the highest rates for divorce each year

The holidays are over, and the new year has begun. Now is the time that people start fulfilling their New Year’s resolutions and make serious changes in their lives. A common New Year’s resolution for many married individuals might be to get a divorce. Professionals from California divorce attorneys, to family mediators, to financial planners who deal with divorce, all agree that January usually ushers in a spike of new clients seeking divorce.

“New Year, New Me?”

Interestingly, this spike immediately follows a lull in California divorce proceedings that begins around Thanksgiving. Most couples want to get through the holiday season before making choices and changes that will dramatically alter their lives. After these couples ring in the new year, however, their focus turns to self-improvement and change, and just as many people use the new year to make resolutions of change, a large number also choose to change their marital status.

In fact, 70% of divorce attorneys surveyed by the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals, an organization that matches couples with mental health experts, financial planners and legal aids to dissolve their unions amicably outside court, reported that January and February are their busiest months.

Deciding whether to get a divorce or not is one of the hardest decisions anyone can ever make. Trying to navigate the legal complications that arise during the proceedings without professional help, especially when substantial assets and children are involved, can be nearly impossible. If you have decided to end your marriage, we urge you to contact our experienced California divorce attorneys to help protect your assets and give you peace of mind during these troubling times.
