January – the National Divorce Month

January – the National Divorce Month


Often, we think of January as the best month to ‘start a fresh’ in our lives. As the New Year approaches, we make personal commitments to make New Years Resolutions. But for some couples, January is also the time when they decide to end their marriages.

Despite the media portrayal of Christmas is a happy time for all, it can be one of the most stressful times of the year. The festive season often brings tension to couples. It can be non stop with  – shopping, visiting the in-laws, cooking, organising parties, etc. While these things sound enjoyable, they can be emotionally stressful too.  Not forgetting the root of a lot of arguments – finances. Financially, Christmas can be a huge drain on money and leave families with debts which can also lead to more stress and tension.

Often when relationships are under strain, misunderstandings and arguments can arise as a result of all of these issues. With the festive season being stuffed with lots of activities, couples can find it hard to sit down and talk about their problems. So, as January strikes and everything goes back to normal, they decide to go ahead and file for divorce.

Each couple is different and may have other reasons for divorce in January. Their troubles may have started before the festive period but couples may have decided to get Christmas out of the way first for the benefit of their children.  Either way, we understand the stress of relationship breakdown and can offer a sympathetic ear, sound advice and a fixed initial fee to try and help with the financial pressure that can often come after Christmas.
