The holidays can be stressful enough without a potential divorce looming over the festivities. While this is a time of joy for many, the holidays can also be full of family tension. You and other families in Nassau County may be among the countless others across the country who are heading for a divorce soon after the holiday season.
Most divorces are filed after the holidays, both in the winter and the summer, according to a University of Washington study. The New York Post reported that divorce filings are most often right on the heels of the New Year, then peak in March. There are numerous reasons you or your spouse might want a divorce after Christmas or the New Year. You might have been unhappy in your marriage well before Thanksgiving, but you did not want to upset the children during what should be a happy time. The beginning of a new year signals change and hope for many people, and might be the inspiration you need to start over. Or, the stress of the holidays could have been the last straw, and you might have only recently made the decision to file for divorce.
No matter what time of year you decide to end your marriage, it is important to make your plans carefully and attempt to keep your children away from the conflict as much as possible. Because this is a sensitive and difficult topic that requires professional counsel, the information in this blog is not intended to replace the advice of a lawyer.
