Having thoughts of filing for divorce? Did you know that January is divorce month? No, it's not like an official holiday or anything. January is just a very big divorce month. Once the holidays are over, New Year's Resolutions are made and clean starts abound.
And divorce lawyers report big surges in January. In fact, now some people use the term "Black Monday," as a reference to the Monday after the New Year, when divorce lawyers see an increase in clients filing for divorce.
"Absolutely. January consistently sees the most divorce filings. It just really amazes me, though it probably shouldn't. . .my own husband left in January," said certified divorce consultant Cathy Meyer, Yourtango.com reports.
