Divorce Day

8th January, 2015

It’s the New Year and for some that means time for a new start.

As the decorations are taken down, and there is a return to normality after the enjoyment of Christmas, people start to take stock of their lives. January is typically the month when people start their resolutions whether that is to undertake more exercise or start a diet. For others the decision to start anew has far more reaching consequences and can often mean an overhaul of their current life.

Christmas can be a fantastic time for families to spend together. However, for others the holiday period can mean spending a lot more time together which can intensify problems and place greater strain on a marriage.

For many couples the decision to start divorce proceedings is taken a number of weeks before formally instructing a solicitor. Husbands and wives will usually meet with a solicitor for initial advice on the divorce process before going away and making a final decision as to whether or not to start a divorce.

Due to the emphasis placed on ‘family time’ during the festive period couples who have considered separating remain together before deciding to start afresh in the New Year. As such the first Monday after the school holiday period has ended has become to be known as ‘Divorce Day’. This is the day when there is a sharp incline in the number of people who determine that they will initiate divorce proceedings.

Following the stress of the Christmas period if you have taken to decision to start divorce proceedings then is it important that you start the next chapter in your life on the right footing and as such it is vital that you seek specialist Family Law advice.
