Divorce rates between heterosexual couples hit 45-year low

Simmering marital tensions can often reach boiling point over the festive season and it is not uncommon for solicitors to see a spike in enquiries throughout the month of January rather than on one particular day. A new year, a new start.

We have begun to see clients citing the cost-of-living crisis amongst the reasons why they are opting to bring their marriage to a conclusion. Financial pressures are often one of the leading causes of marital breakdown and the current economic picture has brought a lot of this to a head.

If you do decide to end your marriage, I would encourage couples to seek guidance from an experienced divorce lawyer. They will be able to talk through the various options that would work best for you, your family and financial situation without exacerbating things.

If you would like to speak to a member of our team please call us on 0161 696 6193 or complete our online enquiry form and we will contact you directly.
