Divorce filings tend to rise in January

Divorce can be an emotional, personal and financial decision, regardless of the time of year. Michigan couples who are thinking about divorce might not believe that the time of year has a significant effect on finally deciding to move on from an unhappy marriage, but research suggests otherwise.
