We are proud to have founding partner David K. Wilkinson contribute his thoughts to the New York Times for their article exploring “divorce month” in the United States.
Backed up by news articles and personal accounts through the past few years, the phenomenon known as “divorce month” suggests that married couples are more likely to initiate divorce proceedings in January, the beginning of the year.
This is substantiated by various legal experts and other professionals, claiming that January is more prone to divorce proceedings due to the holiday period preceding the month, in addition to the customary resolutions people make at the start of a new year.
Wilkinson, a Certified Family Law Specialist and expert in divorce and other family law matters, offered insights into the validity of “divorce month” with valuable authoritative input on the alleged trend. He suggests that there may be other factors at hand that contribute to the rising and falling divorce rates – and general interest in divorce information – throughout the year.
