Many practitioners find that there is an increase in the number of clients wishing to divorce following Christmas or the school holidays.
It has been suggested that following Brexit, many couples are also separating as a result of their differing political views.
Brexit is still very much an issue at the forefront of people's minds and there is still much uncertainty regarding its impact.
It will certainly be interesting to see whether, as a result of these political changes, there is an increase in the number of divorces.
The stress of Brexit is adding to pressure on couples on the brink of divorce, according to the head of the UK’s largest family law organisation. For partners who voted different ways in the referendum, the difficulty of reconciling opposing political views may be the final straw, said Nigel Shepherd, the chair of Resolution, which represents solicitors and those involved in family law across England and Wales.
