In The Media: SmolenPlevy’s Kyung Dickerson on the Surge in January Divorces
There’s a chill during January. Not just outside, but in many a marriage. As just reported on WNEW radio, SmolenPlevy Principal and family law attorney Kyung (Kathryn) Dickerson says January is a busy time for divorce.
“There’s something symbolic about the new year,” according to Dickerson, who states that the number of people who want to take action towards separation and divorce increases after the holidays. Many people wait until January for the sake of their children and family. They don’t want to create memories that associate the holidays with the breaking up of a family.
While the desire to separate is there, some couples fail to prepare financially. Dickerson says people need to consider whether there will be additional expenses, such as a second household and the expenses associated with it. Dickerson suggests couples get a full picture of their finances–assets, debts, etc.
