We state an obvious truism on our website at the Coeur d'Alene law firm of Palmer George & Taylor PLLC, from which we diligently promote the interests of diverse clients in family law matters.

If you're heading toward divorce proceedings as the new year begins, you can take some comfort in knowing that you're not alone. Divorce filings increase by as much as a third in January, even leading some people to call the first Monday of the month "Divorce Monday." (Since Monday's a legal holiday this year, perhaps we should call it "Divorce Tuesday.")
