The holidays are almost upon us. On December 26th, as many people will hit the malls to return unwanted Christmas presents and shop post-holiday sales, others will go online to begin their search for a divorce attorney.
The post-Christmas and New Year’s surge to find a divorce attorney is almost upon us. As I have told people for years, the time between December 26 and the end of January is when I receive the largest number of inquiries from potential divorce clients seeking a divorce in Maryland.
Why the post-holiday rush for divorce attorneys? Although in a troubled marriage, many people decide to hold out through the holidays and do not want to cause a disruption for themselves or their families during what should be a festive and joyous time from Thanksgiving through Christmas. Others make a simple New Year’s resolution: “I am going to be happier next year.” And oftentimes being happier involves divorcing or separating from a spouse.
If you are one of those individuals who is seeking divorce information during the post holiday season, you can call my office to schedule an initial consultation where I will be happy to address any questions you may have about divorce in the State of Maryland. It is a new year, resolve to be happier.
