At Miller Samuel Hill Brown Solicitors, our Family Lawyers usually see a significant increase in the number of divorce enquiries when they return to work in January, and this year it is likely the trend will continue.
While the idea of “Divorce Day”, where people make a desperate dash to end their marriages on the first working day after the Christmas break, is mostly a myth, it is possible that at the start of the new year couples who are unhappy think seriously about a fresh start.
In most cases, clients who are considering divorce have already been in touch with our team for advice and are in the process of considering their options, and often it’s the beginning of a new year that motivates them to make their divorce official. In other cases, couples will have already decided to separate but delay the formal process until after Christmas for their families.
Divorce is difficult to deal with at any time of year, and there are many sensitive matters to be resolved, most importantly those relating to children. It is important to work with a trustworthy, professional and highly-respected solicitor during the divorce process so you can have the confidence that your needs are met and your best interests protected.
While January is the busiest month for our Family Law Solicitors, our team always deals with our clients’ legal needs in an efficient and compassionate manner. Every day we advise and support clients through the process of divorce, so we understand what you are going through. We aim to make your experience with us as easy and stress-free as possible. Our friendly and sympathetic Family Lawyers are here to help you, whatever your situation. Contact us today or complete our online contact form.
