Valentine's Day: The Day Divorce Lawyers Love, Manhattan, New York

Over the next week, many couples will be exchanging gifts, going out to eat at nice restaurants or spending time together as part of their Valentine's Day celebrations. Some may even get engaged or married. However, many others will be heading straight to divorce lawyers to file for divorce.

According to a recent report by Avvo.com – a website offering professional profiles for both attorneys and physicians – filings for divorce typically increase significantly (typically about 40%) around Valentine's Day.

There appears to be a few categories of people who file for divorce around Valentine's Day:

  • The first group of people are those who decided over the holidays and/or made securing a divorce one of their New Year's resolutions, but for whatever reason, have thus far failed to take the necessary steps to end their marriage.
  • The second group are those whose marriages may be on the rocks and who are waiting for the outcome of the Valentine's Day weekend to determine whether or not they want to proceed with a divorce.

If you have exhausted all of your options and would like to learn more about the divorce process, you should strongly consider speaking with the friendly, affordable, convenient legal document preparers at We The People of NY who will prepare all your divorce paperwork and walk with you through the process. You can call or stop in without an appointment for free information with no obligation.
