Why does it matter in which month you file for
divorce? Because divorce can place a heavy toll on your family, especially during
family-centric times of the year. Filing for divorce after the holidays
are over can actually be a wise decision, both personally and financially.
The holidays are usually a stressful time. Adding divorce to the mix can
be mentally and emotionally overwhelming. Many people choose to wait until
January, when the family get-togethers and parties are over, children
are back in school, and life has returned to a normal schedule.
Taxes are an issue that should be considered as well. Since we have an
uncertain taxation level in the upcoming year, you want to know where
you stand financially before you move forward. After December 31st, you
can begin collecting all of the information you need about the finances
of the marriage so that you are prepared and can find out where you stand
financially if you file for divorce.
