"It doesn't look very good to sue your spouse for divorce on Christmas Eve," admits the head of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. Nevertheless, divorce lawyers start seeing a whole lot more clients after the New Year. In fact, the first Monday in January is getting a reputation as Divorce Monday.
During divorce proceedings, those involved in the separation can feel overwhelmed due to the decisions that they must make in short order. Replying to attorney requests, making tentative plans for the future and fulfilling the responsibilities of a career are all tasks that must be addressed in order for the process to move forward. When children's needs are added to the list of concerns to be resolved, this procedure becomes even more complex.
