Francis George Solicitor-Advocate has experienced the highest volume of divorce enquiries in January to date.
Monday, January 8, which is colloquially known as D Day or Divorce Day, has been especially busy for divorce lawyers in 2018. General internet searches for divorce doubled at the start of January as people sought to end their relationships following the festive period.
In the first week of January, Francis George Solicitor-Advocate has been inundated with family work. The company worked on as many as four emergency applications to force removal or to take custody of children or finances and has had a further three court cases in the first week.
Francis George, senior partner at Francis George Solicitor-Advocate stated that: “January is always our busiest time of year. Our stats show a significant increase in the number of enquiries and number of people who want to end their relationship following the festive period.”
The increased divorce interest occurs as The Telegraph also announced that the rate of divorce in both Wales and England have gone up for the first time this decade. This is based on data from the Office for National Statistics.*
