January is seen as one of the busiest times for family solicitors with ‘Divorce Day’ appearing at the very beginning of the month. This year the 4th January was labelled as divorce day, the day upon which lawyers receive more new divorce instructions than any other day in the year.
Typically what happens is that not all those seeking a divorce will call a solicitor that day but there will inevitably be an increase in divorce instructions during the course of January.
For those people considering filing for divorce Christmas holidays can mean there is more time to reflect on their family situation leading to a concentration on what their current domestic situation holds for them in the future.
