Christmas 2013 is sure to be a merry one as always, spending time with the family and seeing the joy on your kids’ faces, as they open their presents. Although, as the festivities start to fade down and the lights on the Christmas tree start to flicker off, it’s often a time for reflection on the upcoming New Year. January can be a depressing time with your limited finances and hangover setting in. Many people also have the weight of their New Year’s resolutions on their shoulders!
Divorce figures by the Office of National Statistics show that January often sees twice as many couples begin divorce proceedings than any other time of year. Experts claim that factors ranging from the stress of family gatherings at Christmas to unwise behaviour encouraged by excessive alcohol intake and office parties can prove the final straw for many married couples. Some spouses will even hang on to their marriage until after Christmas, to avoid upsetting families at that special time.
Relationship breakdowns are emotionally tricky and some feel that there is a social stigma attached to divorce. They feel that it is not right in other people’s eyes or as society accepts. However, when a relationship has irretrievably broken down, the logical next step is to mutually agree to divorce and seek help with the process.
Divorce Negotiator offer free initial consultations to discuss divorce and explain the process in full. We work with both parties to reach a final decision in an amicable and friendly manner. Divorce is often seen as expensive and this could be a factor for putting it off until January. However, we offer an affordable solution that is fair for both of you. We make the whole process as straightforward as possible so the emotional burden isn’t as severe, as having two separate solicitors dealing with it.
Divorce Negotiator wishes you a Merry Christmas and positive New Year!
