March is the top month for kicking a spouse to the curb3/8/2012
March comes in like a lion and goes out like a shark (the legal kind), according to legal site FindLaw, which says that the third month of the year has usurped the first as "Divorce Month." Although searches on the site for "divorce" and such related terms as "family law" and "child custody" spiked in January, they continued to surge through March, with actual divorce filings peaking during that month.
Possible factors driving this marital March madness include taxes (holding onto that coveted "Married, Filing Jointly" status may save you money), post-New Year's revelations of affairs fueled by holiday depression, and parents who want their kids to have one last holiday together as a family.
