March is the biggest month to file for divorce

Many Houston residents are happily married with their life partners. But many other couples are involved in a relationship that is no longer loving and happy. People in these relationships will probably be thinking about divorce and whether that is the best option for their situation. For those considering divorce, March is the most popular divorce month.

Although many may think January is the month where most people file for divorce, it's actually March. There may be several reasons including the feeling of being in a longer winter and the approaching spring may make a person feel like they need to make a change. Or with tax deadlines looming a person may want to split so that they don't have to file a joint return next year. Whatever the reason, spring can bring a new outlook to a person's relationship and help them decide that divorce may be the best option.

For many couples a divorce can be complicated. Often property division results in emotional exchanges over who deserves what, such as prized artwork and family heirlooms. There are also financial accounts such as retirement accounts, business assets, and bank accounts that all need to be divided. A legal professional skilled in family law can help a person navigate a complex divorce. An attorney can walk a person through what needs to be done and can consult with experts with certain aspects of a divorce.

March is the busiest time of the year to get a divorce. For many people spring becomes a time of starting over and a divorce may be the best option for their relationship.
