Somerset Divorce Lawyer Discusses Peak Times for Divorce Proceedings

Researchers have found over the years that times of celebration can also be the end of many relationships. Historically, the majority of divorces have most often been filed in January and March of each year, right around when others are celebrating their relationships on Valentine’s Day.

These peak times have been attributed to the high pressure of holidays, combined with the failed realities of how things turned out. Additionally, experts have noted that this is also around the time that financial and family pressures are at their highest as the holidays end and tax season begins.

According to a 2012 study that appeared in The Family Relations Journal, “Examining the Relationship Between Financial Issues and Divorce,” researchers found kids, finances, their spouse’s family and how much quality time they spend together to be the highest factors when it comes to divorce. However, finances were found to top the list at an alarming rate.

Moreover, some couples may have relied on the romantic Valentine’s holiday to revive their otherwise failing marriage. However, experts advise couples to keep expectations realistic as one night cannot redefine a marriage. Instead, seek a therapist to try to work out problems or try a separation period. If you and your spouse have concerns over what the future may hold, a Somerset divorce lawyer may be able to help put your mind at ease.

It may seem too early to jump the gun, but a skilled family law attorney can do more than just help with divorce proceedings. There may be other options including mediation, trial separation and other solutions you may not have yet considered. The earlier you begin to look at your options, the better hope there is for an agreeable solution.
