Latest insights from our experts
January very often sees a spike in couples contemplating separation and divorce.
There are several reasons why couples decide to separate in January. These often boil down to the pressure Christmas has put on their relationship. Christmas can be an extremely stressful period for many people, placing huge expectations upon a family. Christmas is also one of the rare times of the year that working parents will get to spend a lot of time with their family. When the normal distractions of busy day-to-day lives are removed, any relationship problems can become very clear.
Some people may also feel that they are not in a position to afford legal advice until the New Year, once the cost of Christmas is over.
A divorce or separation will affect your financial situation, living arrangements, children arrangements and more. Divorce can be tough for all parties involved, including children, which is why our local divorce solicitors with expert knowledge in this area can assist and guide you through the procedure, regardless of what stage you are at.
It can also be the case that appointments to seek legal advice will have been made in December by people who were already planning to start the divorce process in the New Year, having stayed together over the festive period for the sake of their children or loved ones, and to spend a last Christmas together.
