August popular with Connecticut residents to decide to divorce

Many people get that free and easy feeling in summer months. That may or may not be the reason that this time of year is when many people decide to divorce. With kids out of school for summer and vacations in high gear, Connecticut couples seem to be able to make the decision to end their marriages in the heat of the season since thoughts of divorce peak in the summertime.

There are two months when people file most often for divorce - March and August. Research shows that this is not a one-off, but has been happening for years. Experts believe that during these months couples get the opportunity to spend more time together and with that often comes the realization that things just aren't working out. Lawyers suggest couples begin planning for divorce months before actually making the final decision and filing to end their marriages.

Summer months may give individuals the time to complete the tasks associated with divorce. Those include making an inventory of assets, collecting records that might be needed for the process, establishing separate bank accounts, and getting together a support network to help with what will likely be an emotional time. Summer may also offer the time for spouses to consider what they want moving forward as single individuals and to make decisions regarding children.

For Connecticut residents who would like to know more about the divorce process and what it takes to divorce in the state, an attorney is the right person to contact. Divorce can be overwhelming and having some knowledge of the process may relieve some of the stress. A lawyer may be able to help a client right from the moment he or she makes the decision that divorce is on the horizon for his or her marriage.

  • Hi Yuliana and Attorney Prince, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to meet with me. I really appreciated how compassionate you were while listening to my situation, even through my tears. Thank you so much for sharing such valuable information with me. I left feeling very hopeful that when the dust settles, I’ll be ok.
  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
