Santa Clarita Divorce Filings Up In May 2017 For Divorce 661
Wow, I was so busy the first and second week of May that I haven’t even had a chance to write my daily blog post. While we normally file about 20 to 25 divorce cases in an average month, as of today, May 13, 2017 I have already filed 22 new divorce cases.
In one day alone, I filed 6 new divorce cases. I am not sure if that is a record day for divorce filings for Divorce661, but it was definitely note worthy.
There are certain trends I have seen since starting this divorce business in 2012. We see increased in filings from January through May or June and then a slight decrease in divorce filings in June through August.
The only thing that makes sense about the slowing down in June is that kids are graduating and summer is beginning. That is the only reason I can come up with for the slowdown during this time.
Then, when the kids go back to school, say around September, we get really busy again. This business will continue right up until about Thanksgiving when we see things slow down again. This slowdown runs us until the end of the year. This is pretty obvious with all the holidays towards the end of the year.
The questions is, are there more people filing during these months organically, or is it simply a build up over these slow months where people would have normally filed, but for the summer months and holidays?
Either way we stay pretty busy year round with about 20 to 25 filings per month. I can see this May we might be looking closer to 35+ divorce filings if the current pace keeps up.
