Chocolates, flowers and romantic candlelit meals are not the only things that people think about on Valentine’s Day. In fact, according to experts, some think about divorce. Texas residents may be surprised to learn that some experts see an increase of 26 percent for searches relating to divorce during the week before Valentine’s Day as compared to the week before.
For the past five years after the holidays but before Valentine’s Day, they saw on average around a 30 percent increase for individuals searching for legal advice for divorce-related questions. Although numbers do not lie, they do not, however, explain themselves. It is unclear precisely why there tends to be such a sudden rise in divorce-related questions.
However, some experts say when couples choose to get a divorce, it very often just comes down to financial issues. How one spends his or her money says a great deal about them, as it shows what that person values. So, at their core, these are issues that the individuals have with one another about not being in agreement with what they value.
Even the most amicable divorce has the potential to bring hidden emotional problems to the surface. Those difficulties may multiply exponentially if the divorce is at all contentious or children are involved. Therefore, it is crucial that a concerned individual have an experienced Texas divorce attorney by his or her side. As a personal advocate, a skilled attorney will protect his or her client’s rights and seek agreeable outcomes to unresolved issues while keeping the children’s best interests at heart.
