In the world of family law, January is commonly known as Divorce Month. It sounds a little cynical perhaps, but divorce professionals seem to agree that there is an annual spike in the number of calls they receive from new clients after the winter holidays. From another angle, if you are thinking of divorce or beginning the process around now, you are emphatically not alone.
Pre-Covid, we hosted an annual live panel in January or February called “First Steps” that provided an initial overview of the divorce process from a top family attorney and financial expert (members can watch the best of these in the UNtying the Knot video series). This year we are hosting a similar event online, but structuring it entirely around your questions!
Tune in and get answers to your divorce-related questions from one of our favorite family attorneys.
