Thinking about divorce this ‘Divorce Day’?

In previous years, there has been a rise in divorce enquiries on the first working Monday of the year. This has led to the the media terming it ‘Divorce Day’. This year it falls on 8th January.

Christmas is sometimes viewed as the cause of divorce. With all the pressures of family, time spent together and money worries, it can be a stressful time.

It is thought that couples rethink their relationship after the Christmas period, or that they have delayed separation until after Christmas.

However, it is important to not see Christmas as a reason for divorce. Whilst the festive period can exacerbate pre-existing problems in a relationship, it is not the sole catalyst.

Although the media play into the idea of ‘Divorce Day’, for some couples it may be a reality.

If you are thinking about divorce, or are starting proceedings, we have put together some free resources to help guide you through the process.
