Divorce Rates Rise After Winter and Summer Breaks

A recent study found a spike in divorce rates following the winter and summer breaks. An analysis of divorce filings from 2001 to 2015 showed peak filings in the months of March and August.

While it is difficult to pinpoint the cause behind these results, anecdotal evidence suggests the winter and summer holidays may be used as a sort of rejuvenation period for rocky marriages. Partners who feel uneasy about their marriages but are unsure how to address the issue hope the joy that comes with the holidays will turn things around. When no turning point arrives, unhappy partners react by filing a divorce petition.

Anyone who has been through a divorce knows what a critical life event it can be. Particularly when there are children and assets involved, anyone planning to file for divorce needs a legal advocate who can help navigate through the many complicated stages of a divorce proceeding.

At Fausone Bohn, we understand a divorce is more than signing a paper terminating a marriage. We help clients resolve all the aspects of marital dissolution, including business valuation, child custody and visitation, division of property, spousal support, and even domestic violence issues.
