New year brings surge in divorce proceedings

Monday 8th January is labelled as Divorce Day by many lawyers, who see a significant spike in divorce applications following the Christmas period.

It is a time when couples can re-evaluate their relationships and ultimately make life-altering decisions.

More than 113,000 divorces were filed in the UK according to the last available ONS data from 2021. Following the introduction of ‘no-fault’ divorces in April 2022, analysts believe figures could increase further. 

Understanding the Divorce Day Phenomenon

The surge in divorce applications around this time of year is not a mere coincidence. The holiday season, typically a time for joy and togetherness, can accentuate existing marital issues.

The added stress of family gatherings, financial strain, and unmet expectations can push couples to confront the realities of their relationships.

As the new year begins, many see it as an opportunity for a fresh start, prompting an influx of inquiries.
