Summary: Why Divorce Rates Increase After The Holidays?

The first week in January is known as "Divorce Week" amongst divorce firms.  There are a variety reasons for the uptick in divorce filings in January.  Some attribute the increase to New Year's resolutions to start over, while other studies suggest that extensive time spent together over the holidays leads to stress and disputes.  The Covid-19 pandemic resulted in an increase in divorce filings as well.  This may be attributed to a lack of outlets for couples, due to the closers of recreational activities, gyms, bars, and other venues.  If you find yourself considering a divorce, contact the divorce lawyers at Solomos and Storms for a free consultation.
