More divorces happen in March than any other month

Many couples would be surprised to learn that March is the biggest month for divorce of the entire year, but data proves it’s true, FOX 26 reported on March 16.

Divorce activity commencing in January peaks in March. One reason couples may wait until the new year to divorce is because divorcing after December 31 guarantees that the couple can file “Married filing jointly” on their tax return, which is more beneficial than filing “Single.” Similarly, a couple is likely to be more sensitive of the holiday season and the familial aspect that entails.
