Navigating the most popular month for divorces

For better and for worse, more Americans choose to file for divorce during January than during any other month of the year. There are many reasons for this remarkable trend. Many couples do not want to drain the color out of the holiday season with news of their divorce. In addition, many individuals view the dawning of a new year as inspiration to pursue healthy choices. Oftentimes, choosing to divorce one’s spouse is indeed a very healthy choice.

However, divorcing during January does not become simple simply because divorcing during January is popular. Many couples who choose to divorce during January face the same kinds of physical, emotional, financial and practical hurdles that other couples do when they file for divorce later in the calendar year. Thankfully, there are many things that you can do to successfully navigate this popular month for divorce while simultaneously preparing yourself for the process ahead.

First, consider taking a trip down to your local bookstore or library. This resource contains a wealth of knowledge related to the divorce process, the grieving process and navigating divorce with kids. The inspirational and even funny stories that others tell about their divorces and the advice you can find within books and magazines just may help you more than you originally thought such resources could.

Second, consider speaking with an attorney as quickly as possible. As soon as you know that you want a divorce, you should seek guidance on the dos and don’ts of the process. Failure to take this important step may leave you vulnerable in negative ways.
