Divorce rates sore with the temperature
The legal profession is all too aware that the stress of Christmas can put added pressure on married couples, with the start of the New Year often resulting in a greater number of enquiries regarding divorce. However, in recent years there has been an increase in the number of couples seeking information about divorce following the summer holidays.
During this time, couples are likely to spend more time in each other’s company, whilst also juggling the stress of work, child care and family holidays, all within a short period of time. In some cases, parents want to have one last holiday as a family before making the difficult decision to separate.
When separating from your spouse, it is important to understand all of the options, along with the potential consequences regarding finances and/or children. Divorce does not have to result in contentious arguments or lengthy Court battles. Instead, couples can work towards an amicable separation that benefits the family. To achieve this however, it is important to be aware of the process and what constitutes a fair separation.
