In the month of January, there is a perfect storm of events. It is very cold during this month as winter is in full swing. The major holidays of December are over and most people have been thoroughly taxed by relatives and in-laws. After January, many look towards Valentine’s Day in February as a day to celebrate love and romantic relationships. It is somewhat interesting that through the months of January and February more people are getting divorced.
There are studies that show that January is the most active month for divorce and October is the least. Some people in legal circles even call January the “divorce month”. They cite that many people are looking to have a fresh start. Some people think that their first resolution is to separate from their spouses. The holidays sometimes bring hope for a change in a spouse but sometimes only cement the decision that it is the proper time to move on. Most people who come to this realization try to get through the holidays without disrupting their families.
Take this time before the holidays to consider the state of your relationship and set a goal for what changes you would like to see. Once the holidays are here, it can become very stressful on your union with your spouse. If you have tried counseling, compromising, and cooperating, you may believe that divorce is your only option. There is no good time to pursue a divorce, but if it is the best option for you, make sure you contact an experienced divorce attorney in Cook County.
