D-Day (Divorce Day) Makes Its Annual Appearance

Traditionally the first day back at work is usually busy with enquiries for divorce for family lawyers.  It is reported by the media that there is a 30% increase in enquiries today.

Additionally Relate and other agencies who provide counselling see an increase in enquiries.

Historically couples wait until after Christmas to divorce for many reasons – for the sake of their children, so as not to spoil their Christmas holidays or simply due to spending more time in each others company than usual.

In addition the New Year is often when people take stock and consider where their life is up to and what is happening in their relationship.

All relationships are uniquely different, with a various issues to resolve, we would encourage anyone going through relationship difficulties to obtain professional family law advice.  This is important so that each party is aware of their options before entering into agreements.
