You’ve heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday but have you heard of Divorce Monday?
Divorce Monday falls on the first business day of January.
“New Year, New You!” With the New Year it brings a newfound courage to start over or start a new chapter in life. The start of a new year is time for rejuvenation and renewal in January. Many couples find it obligatory to ease the pain by mustering up one last Holiday with the family and the notion of leaving your partner right before the Holidays just doesn’t sit well. Another reason could be, divorcing in the beginning of the year, has the expectation that the divorce will finalize within the year, paving the way for filing taxes as ‘single’ rather than ‘jointly’ for 2018.
