The Summer is Officially "Divorce Season": Study Reveals Increase in Divorce in June/July/August

A recent Washington State University study has tracked divorce trends in North America over a 14-year period and researchers have found that families have consistently chosen to separate/divorce in June, July & August.

Researchers opined that the summer months are most popular because children are out of school and so the transition to a new home and/or new school in September wouldn't cause much disruption.

In mediation, parents can come together to plan every detail of their co-parenting future. For example, a co-parenting plan can outline how a close co-parents will live near each other, what school the children will attend and how the parents can support their children through this transition. The summer is a great time for this as it allows parents to prepare a strong parenting plan before the children return to school.
