There's a reason why January has been nicknamed divorce month

Here we go again -- it's time for another season of divorce. No, we're not talking about the popular television show with Sarah Jessica Parker, we're talking about January -- the time of year that's been aptly nicknamed "Divorce Month."

Family law attorneys have long known to expect a surge in new clientele in the month of January, and there are some very good reasons for this. For one, the holiday season is a time when we spend more time with our significant others and families. It's a time when the stresses of marital relations can reach their peak, and when insurmountable challenges -- or an irreparable rift in a relationship -- can be revealed.

The new year is also a time when we tend to make decisions about certain life situations that require an update and change. Perhaps your new year's resolution is to finally take action on bringing your marriage to an end after it became clear a long time ago that you needed a divorce.

The holidays and all the buying frenzies of the presents and gifts can also put financial strains on a marriage. Most North Carolina residents are aware that financial difficulties or financial disagreements are some of the most common reasons why couples decide to go their separate ways.

Finally, after all the harsh realities that can come to the surface during the difficult holiday months, couples in nonfunctioning marriages will be looking toward a very difficult and unfortunate Valentine's Day. That might be enough to inspire action. There is nothing more emotionally painful than a Valentine's Day shared by two spouses who no longer have any room for love and magic in their relationship.

Are you considering a divorce in North Carolina? It may be time to discuss your situation with a divorce attorney. An experienced divorce lawyer will be able to help you weigh your legal rights and options available for ending your marriage.
