Divorce During the Winter Months

There are a lot of different hurdles that you may have to work through during your divorce, and you may have many different things to consider. For example, you might be unsure of how to bring up the topic of divorce with your spouse, or you could be worried about the financial impact of this major decision. Even if you are positive that divorce is necessary, you might wonder how the process will affect your schedule. For example, you might be trying to figure out which time of year would be best. When it comes to divorce during the wintertime, there are various issues you may need to consider.

Winter can be a great season for divorce for a number of reasons. For those with children, kids may be occupied by school and it may be easier to separate them from certain divorce-related stressors because they are gone during the day. Moreover, some people may have more free time during the winter, whether they work fewer hours or are not occupied with various outdoor interests that are dependent on better weather. On the other hand, there may be certain drawbacks with filing for a divorce in the winter. For example, some people struggle with seasonal affective disorder and feel less energetic during this season.

Ultimately, you should do what is best regardless of the time of year. Please visit our page on divorce and separation if you would like to read more about various legal considerations regarding the end of marriage.
