Divorce Season

Illinois custody attorney, Illinois family law attorney, Illinois divorce lawyer,It seems, by many accounts, that once the presents are all opened, the decorations stored away for another year and the final notes of Auld Lang Syne have faded, that thoughts frequently turn toward divorce. As is the case with most things in life, divorce is another that seems to have its own season during which the rate is higher than other times of the year.

It All Starts in January

As it turns out, January is a popular month for online searches that include the terms “divorce lawyer” and “file for divorce.” Some studies show it only second, by less than half a percent, to July. So why is January a month when many people begin the divorce process? The answers appear fairly straight-forward.

  • Many believe that unhappy spouses put off initiating a divorce during the holidays for the sake of keeping the season happy and cheerful for children and family members.
  • Along those lines, the new year is a traditional time for individuals to select and implement resolutions designed to improve themselves or their life. Extracting themselves from an unhappy marriage could be one of those resolutions.
  • January is the time of year when many couples begin pulling together financial records in preparation for tax filing. Having that financial information organized and on hand tends to be quite helpful for divorce attorneys helping with the process.

Divorce Does Not Have a Single Month

Unlike the winter holiday season, that seems to span from just after Halloween through the beginning of the new year, there is evidence that those considering divorce do not limit themselves to a single time of the year.

There are reports that indicate actual filings for divorce are highest in March and August. This may actually coincide with studies that indicate January and July as the months when online searches of divorce-related topics are highest, as research generally precedes action.
