National Divorce Day

Today marks the annual and national divorce day coined by the media as the first Monday in January.

National divorce day usually follows a Christmas where couples may feel that they are being forced to spend what is usually a joyful time together, but instead they are finding the situation unbearably stressful and have spent most of their Christmas break considering their options for divorce, that’s why today is classed as National ‘Divorce Day’ the day that lawyers receive a number of calls on their first day back, in relation to divorce after the Christmas break.

In 2019, there had been a surge of divorces by a fifth.
