Are you headed for a post-holiday divorce?

The holidays can be a stressful time for most families. Not only do you have to get your Christmas shopping done and deal with the crowds, you might also be feeling the pinch in your wallet and a touch of impatience with your family members. This can be especially true if you and your spouse have not been getting along. If you are considering a divorce, you are not alone. Many people in Texas and elsewhere decide to call their marriage quits soon after the holiday season.

In fact, the first few months of the year are known as divorce season to many family law attorneys, according to Business Insider. It has been reported that law firms see a spike in divorce filings in January, with divorces peaking in February and March. Why might you and others be so keen to file for divorce in the new year? The following situations are common:

  • Holiday stress and contention might erode an already rocky marriage.
  • People ready for a fresh start might consider a New Year’s divorce.
  • Couples who have already decided to split may want to wait until the holidays are over before filing.
  • It could make sense financially to file for divorce at the beginning of the tax year.

Your reasons for filing a divorce may vary, but once you decide to go through with it, the timing should not matter much. Obtaining competent legal counsel does matter, however; therefore, this information is not meant to substitute as legal advice.
