This is sad, but apparently the first week of a new year is the busiest time for divorce attorneys.
It questioned 100 top divorce lawyers who all agreed the week beginning Monday, January 8 was one of their busiest of the year.
Leading divorce lawyer James Stewart, of Manches LLP said Christmas was often the final nail in the marital coffin - leading to a surge in the number of people instructing solicitors in the new year.
He said: "Extra time together can force problems that already exist in the relationship to come to a head.
"We're expecting this to be our busiest day and indeed our busiest week." for divorce attorneys.
Divorce is always depressing to me. I don't even like watching marital disputes in movies. Maybe I should have posted about something else.
