It can be difficult, however, having a level head in divorce and divorce preparation and planning for a divorce will likely help you through this difficult time more easily. Now that the holidays are behind us, people previously considering a divorce are usually more inclined to take action to end their marriage in the new year. The reasons can vary. Some people put the idea of divorce on the back burner in an effort to get through the holidays. Others put their plans into action in order to have a fresh start in the new year.
