January dubbed as the divorce month

It is now January and most Colorado couples may still be recovering from last month's festivities and heartaches. Trying to keep a stiff upper lip in front of family members and especially the children can be difficult. Now that the holidays are over, it may be time to starting thinking about the future. Whether to stay with the family or go ahead and file for divorce is the question many seem to ask themselves this time of year.

According to one source, their analysis of the amount of calls inquiring for information regarding divorce usually spikes in January. They also state that there is a peak in March. According to the some sources, many start looking for legal advice in January, but usually wait until March to file for divorce. The main reason given for waiting until after the holidays was not wanting to be viewed as being heartless by those around them.

Online divorce related topic searches jump as much as 50 percent in December and January. Another reported popular time of year for divorce was the month of September. This is because summer vacations are over and the holiday season is often considered quite a way off at that point.

There may be no ideal time to announce the prospect of divorce. As many Colorado couples may attest, the best policy may be to just forge ahead with the plan to file for divorce and let the chips fall where they may, no matter when the decision to end a marriage is made. Once the initial shock is over, then the healing process may begin for all those involved with a new beginning on the horizon.
