January -divorce and separation month

It is a sad fact that many relationships break up in January. Over Christmas, families and couples often spend long periods together, highlighting underlying tensions. Overexcited children, parents in law, too much alcohol and heavy spending don’t help either.

Thinking about separation or divorce is not easy but the New Year is often a time for reflection and new resolutions and so it can feel the right time to take that huge decision to end the relationship.

If you are one of those people contemplating taking this step consider making your first port of call  coming to see us for an assessment to see if family mediation might be a way of helping you separate in a dignified, amicable way; particularly important if you have children who can very easily get caught up in bitter battles between the two of you.

Talk to us; we are available to see you at short notice at a time to suit you, daytime, evenings or weekends.
