Divorce filings and inquiries to divorce attorneys significantly increase in January due to a number of reasons, according to Cordell & Cordell Texas divorce attorney Samuel Sanchez.
Mr. Sanchez told San Antonio radio station 1200 WOAI that stressed caused by the holidays and financial liabilities late in the year is a contributing factor to the January spike, but cautions that divorces aren’t just triggered by the holidays.
“Couples don’t suddenly decide to divorce in the days before January,” Mr. Sanchez said. “In all of the cases, the problems have been building for some time.”
