Jan 8 2024 • 51 mins

As we kick off the new year, we dive into a unique phenomenon that January brings to the forefront of the divorce landscape - the "Divorce Month" trend. While resolutions are in the air, so is a notable surge in divorce filings, with studies revealing a 33% increase from January to March.

In this episode, Susan takes us through the early stages of divorce, exploring the immediate aftermath of the pivotal moment when individuals ask themselves, "What now?" As a seasoned divorce attorney with over 30 years of experience, Susan shares her insights and advice on navigating this challenging journey.

Join us throughout the month as we unravel the reasons behind the “Divorce Month” trend, answer your burning questions, and support the emotional and practical challenges that arise during this significant life transition.

Golden Nuggets and Topics:

  • Understanding some of the reasons January has been dubbed "Divorce Month," one such reason includes New Year’s resolutions, which often involve self-reflection and reevaluating priorities, leading some to confront the truth about their marriage.
  • Why it is important to give yourself the grace of space, whether you have finally made the ultimate decision or been informed that divorce is in your future, it is important to DO NOTHING except get your feet back under you.
  • Navigating the Emotional Landscape: “Divorce is a grief process.”
  • Practical Steps and Preparation: Gathering key documents and creating a parenting.

Soberlink’s alcohol monitoring system is the most convenient, reliable, and reasonable way for a parent to provide evidence that they are not drinking during parenting time.

Soberlink’s real-time alerts, facial recognition, and tamper detection ensure the integrity of each test, so you can be confident your kids are with a sober parent. With Soberlink, judges rest assured that your child is safe, attorneys get court-admissible evidence of sobriety, and both parents have empowerment and peace of mind.
