Why January is a popular month for divorce

Couples in New Jersey and throughout the country may not want to get divorced during the holidays. This may be especially true if they have kids and want to spend one more Christmas as a single family unit. Those without children may also loathe the idea of spending the holidays by themselves. In some cases, people may be less likely to divorce during the holidays because the Christmas season inspires hope that a marriage can be salvaged.

Studies find expanding stepfamilies after divorce

In many cases, divorce may eventually lead to bigger families. As people divorce and remarry, families might expand through the addition of stepchildren, stepsiblings and stepparents.

Divorce for business owners

People in New Jersey who are getting a divorce and who own a business will need to make some hard decisions about the future of their company.
