The first Monday of every new year has been tagged National Divorce Day as law firms all over the country are inundated with divorce enquiries after the pressures of the holiday season take their toll on relationships.

The media sometime attribute this rise in interest to the financial and social pressures that can be associated with Christmas festivities. It has, however, been our experience that these enquiries are the product of problems that have been occurring in a relationship for some time. It is more likely, in our view, that people see the new year as a time to start fresh and on that basis, take the first steps to improving their position.

Whatever the reason for considering divorce or separation, it is important to get legal advice at an early stage. The lawyers in BakerLaw’s family law department can advise you on a wide range of options in the event of separation or divorce including making provision for financial settlement. We have a considerable expertise in assisting high net worth clients with matrimonial situations. In addition, our lawyers have a wealth of experience with the armed forces and pride ourselves on our acute knowledge in this niche area.
