December A Busy Month For Divorces In Santa Clarita
I hate to admit it, but December is always a very busy month for divorces not only in Santa Clarita, but all of Los Angeles County.
The interesting thing is that while the phones are literally ringing off the hook, most people are just calling to get information and holding off until after the new year.
This makes sense to me. Why make more difficult what is probably already a difficult time in your life by filing for divorce during the holidays. Let’s get past Christmas and New Years and then it can be back to business as far as getting through the divorce process.
So while the phones continue to ring, we are simply advising our soon to be clients that they should expect the courts to be busy come January and February as all these folks who are filing for divorce then will certainly have an impact on the court services.
One thing you might want to consider is to get your initial divorce documents prepared and filed in December and then just hold onto them until you are ready to serve your spouse in January. Nobody will no you filed for divorce but you. Oh, and me!
By doing this you will have already completed the initial divorce paperwork and be ready to move forward come January and be that much ahead of the game.
Don’t forget that the divorce does not actually start until you spouse is served, so if you were concerned about timing, there is nothing to worry about.
So whether you just need the information about our services or are ready to get started, please feel free to give us a call. We would be happy to discuss your options in filing for divorce and about your specific circumstances.
We are a licensed and bonded legal document preparation service that specializes in the divorce process. We look forward to hearing from you.
