Divorce Lawyers Braced For Busy Autumn Irwin Mitchell Say September Marks Start Of Busy Divorce Season 27.08.2014 Dave Grimshaw, Press Officer | 0114 274 4397 Specialist Family lawyers at Irwin Mitchell are bracing themselves for an influx of new clients as history suggests that September will be the start of a one of the busiest periods in the year for divorce enquiries. The latest statistics show that 42% of marriages end in Divorce and while January delivers a well-known spike in couples seeking to separate, September and October also stand out as one of the busiest times of year for family lawyers. Specialist family and divorce lawyers at Irwin Mitchell say that with over 100,000 children involved in divorces each year and around half of all couples separating having children, it should be no surprise that September is seen as one of the better times to make a new start. Recent research by the Family Law team at Irwin Mitchell showed that 49% of couples having difficulties tried taking a holiday together to repair their relationship – but 27% of divorcees admitted that this failed to help save their marriage. Lawyers say that the most common reasons for people contacting them after the summer are: • holiday arguments widening cracks in relationship; • a desire to stay together over the summer for the sake of their children; • going on holidays that are already booked and paid for before making the decision; • waiting until their child’s back-to-school arrangements are finalised.
