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.

Whatever the reason, if you are planning to get divorced in Denton or elsewhere in Texas, the attorneys of Alexander & Associates can help you understand your legal options and the next steps to take in the process. Call our offices at (972) 420-6560 today to learn how we may work on behalf of your rights and interests throughout every aspect of your divorce.

The couple will now have to wait about six weeks for a decree absolute to finalize their divorce.
