The decision to end your marriage is never an easy one, but it may seem as though January is the month in which many people make just that choice. January is, indeed, a month with a high rate of divorce filings. For some, the stress of the holidays is just too much to bear and it becomes clear that they will not be able to save your marriage. For others, they have simply been avoiding the inevitable until the holidays are over. Either way, the first step in ending your marriage is to seek experienced legal representation from a Brevard County divorce attorney.
Why Divorce in January?
The holidays are a stressful time of year already and there never seem to be enough hours in the day. Starting the divorce process simply may not be practical. You will need to meet with your attorney and file the paperwork necessary to get the procedure started. In addition, you may not have the funds available with all of the other expenses that happen at this time of the year.
Another reason for the prevalence of divorce filings in January is the new year. According to Psychology Today, one of the reasons people divorce in January is to get a fresh start. The new year is a time of resolutions and new beginnings. It may just seem like the best time to make important life changes that will impact you and your family.
Certainly you have many issues to iron out when you decide to end your marriage. Even couples who agree on most things may have some disagreements. The most common disagreements are typically about finances and children. Your attorney will assist you in resolving disputes and creating compromises while ensuring that you obtain the best possible results.
The divorce process is not just a legal procedure; it is also an emotional and stressful time in your life and the lives of your family members. It is a good idea to prepare properly for a divorce and not make any hasty decisions. Discuss your divorce with an attorney to determine the best and most practical way to move forward.
The decisions you make now will have a lasting impact on you and your children, so it is imperative that you understand your options. An experienced divorce attorney understands the implications of the choices you make and also knows that this is a traumatic time in your life. If you have children, the first and most important decisions will account for their emotional well-being.
