Happy New Year.....Can I Get Divorced Now?
January tends to be a very busy month for family law lawyers. Many people decide to wait until after the holidays to start the divorce process, some people decide the new year will give them the opportunity to start fresh. Our phones tend to be very busy the first week in January with people who are coming in for consultations and for people who have already met with us who are now ready to start the divorce process. I'm always curious as to the reasoning behind why people wait until January to get a divorce. Is January any better than December? If you get divorced around the holidays, does this scar the holidays for you for life? For all of you out there who have waited until January 1st to start your divorce, I invite you to post your comments here as to why you decided now is the time to start the process.
