If divorce is among your resolutions for 2015, we can help

For people here in Texas and across the nation, things are finally slowing down after the exciting -- yet exhausting -- holiday season. That means returning to work, taking down the decorations and resuming the activities of everyday life.

While you might be tempted to think that the majority of people are going to be taking it easy over the next several weeks as they ease back into their routines, guess again. Indeed, many are now hard at work honoring their resolutions for 2015, which may include exiting an unhappy marriage.

Believe it or not, January has long been unofficially referred to by many family law attorneys as "Divorce Month" given that the number of divorce filings typically sees a dramatic jump over this stretch of 31 days.    

"We see a significant increase in people seeking out divorce advice and, ultimately, filing," said the president of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. "The number of filings is one-third more than normal. That begins in January and probably goes into early March."

As you might imagine, the prevailing theories for Divorce Month are that people 1) are reluctant to initiate what they believe will be a difficult process during an already busy time of the year and want to enjoy a final holiday as a family unit, and 2) are energized by their resolutions for the new year and the fresh start they offer.

Whether you are ready to initiate the divorce process as soon as possible in 2015 or are simply considering this as an option, consider contacting a skilled legal professional as soon as possible.

At the Law Offices of Wendy Wood, we understand and appreciate how the divorce process can prove to be an emotionally turbulent time. On the one hand, you might be excited by the prospect of exiting an unhappy marriage and looking ahead to a future on your own. On the other hand, you may be stricken with conflicting feelings of fear, guilt and even sadness about the prospect of divorce.
