Valentine’s Day has come and gone. Business is booming for divorce lawyers. Every year, divorce attorneys across the country prepare for the fallout when couples fall out of love. February and March is known in the industry as ‘divorce season.” According to a relationship counselor, Valentine’s Day can play a big part in the uptick. “It’s a Hallmark holiday. Everything you see is inspired by love. So individuals who are already on a rocky road, or experiencing discord, tend to want to achieve this ideal. When the expectations are that high, disappointment can easily happen.”
In addition to the holiday letdown, February also corresponds with tax time. Many clients use their tax refunds to pay their attorney fees.
