January Marks the Start of "Divorce Season"

It’s that time of year again, and it is not a jolly time. The weeks and months following the holidays are often referred to by domestic attorneys as “Divorce Season.” It is the time of year when couples who were able to grin and bear it through one more holiday season cannot bear the thought of spending one more winter with their spouse.   We even see it play out on television, as Peter Thomas recently revealed to Cynthia Baily of the Real Housewives of Atlanta that he wants his own “man cave” across town where he can escape the stress of their relationship and People Magazine describes their marriage as at its “breaking point.”

People facing divorce may hear different accounts from family and friends and are often unsure of what to expect.   Many couples hope to part ways without resorting to a nasty court battle, but are fearful and overwhelmed by impending decisions about custody, regular visitation, holiday visitation, child support, alimony, division of retirement accounts, deciding who keeps the house, deciding who keeps the car; the list goes on!

It’s been my experience that preparation is key.  We can help ease the fear and anxiety that comes along with filing for divorce by narrowing down your issues before heading to court.  Speaking with an experienced divorce attorney before filing for divorce can help you create the general framework of a divorce action as well as the issues that are specific to your case. Every divorce is different, and with that in mind, our attorneys can help you tailor a resolution for your needs, and help you anticipate and prepare for the next steps in the process.
