Are you building up to the “D-Day” blues in January?

As New Year approaches unfortunately, for some couples, the strain of the busy Christmas period can lead to a complete breakdown in their relationship and some couples decide that the only option is to separate and divorce.

The first working day back after the Christmas Break has often been dubbed as D-Day (Divorce Day). It is the day of the year where people make the most enquiries about divorce, which this year falls on Tuesday 3rd January 2017

The family law team at Smith Partnership usually experience an influx of new enquiries in January which is often attributed to the concept of “a fresh start” for those that have been contemplating separation for some time; and for many they do not want to be “in the same domestic situation” for next Christmas.

If there are children in the family, then there may be added reluctance to separate before Christmas.  However, once the festivities are over, the urgency for separation or divorce can find their way on the New Year’s Resolution list.

If you feel that your relationship/marriage has broken down and you believe that a separation/divorce is the answer, it is advisable to get proper legal advice at the outset, so that you know what your options are regarding finances, arrangements for children and any other relevant issues personal to your circumstances.
