It is no secret that January is often a busy month for divorce filings. If children are involved, some parents stick it out through Christmas. For others, the holidays are the nail in the coffin of a relationship. Some even delay filing until after the first of the year for tax purposes.
Whatever the reason, this January seems to be no exception. For 2012, it appears divorce filings have increased even more significantly, perhaps due to the slightly better economic situation than last year. Many that could not have afforded a divorce at this time last year are finally able to financially afford to get their case moving.
I have already noticed an increased number of visitors to my blog and increased phone calls to the office, indicating that January 2012 will be a busy month in Flathead County.
