January divorce monthIs one of your New Year’s resolutions to get divorced? You’re not alone. Hundreds of couples wait for the turn of the calendar to finally file for divorce in Michigan. Here are just five reasons January is often called “divorce month.”

  1. That resolution thing.

While some people resolve to work harder at their marriage in the New Year, others are ready to call it quits and consider January 1 the perfect time to begin. A divorce is filled with stress and decision-making and highly charged emotions, but there are couples who look forward to the new start after what may have been an especially difficult year. January is a sensible time to make a change and forge ahead in life and love.

  1. The holidays are over.

Some couples agree to hold it together over the holidays for the sake of the kids. Filing for divorce in January gives families an entire year to get used to the idea of no longer being together. While the last Christmas together might not be peachy keen, knowing that there is a light at the end of the tunnel helps some people muscle through the festivities. Couples may work harder to get along for at least a little while so the children can have a happy holiday, and not a holiday that is forever attached to the announcement, “We’re getting a divorce.”

  1. Money, money, money.

Divorce can get sticky, especially the financial part of it. Holding off on filing for divorce until January means your divorce will not interfere with the previous year’s tax filing. Your next tax filing, however, will require a little extra labor. Working with a knowledgeable Michigan attorney will ensure that you consider every financial situation and how it will affect you now, in the future, and at tax time.

  1. Prepping for Valentine’s Day.

Whether we like it or not, Valentine’s Day is a big commercial deal. The thought of faking it on February 14 or suffering through another one of these holidays knowing you don’t really love the one you’re with is too much for some couples to tolerate. They want their divorce to be started before February rolls around so they don’t have to endure a Valentine’s Day in an unloving relationship. And, for some people, they want to spend January seeking that perfect new date for their next Valentine’s Day.

  1. It’s simply logistics.

Couples who want to file for Michigan divorce in December may ultimately decide to wait until January because there is simply too much going on in the last month of the year. You’re prepping for the holidays, whether you’re in an unsatisfying marriage or not. You’re working harder to take time off from work. You’re making travel plans and buying gifts and thinking about the immediate future and not the far-off future. It’s not unusual to want to make it through everything December holds so that you finally have time to dedicate to the upcoming change in your life.
