Christmas can be a stressful time and there are usually additional financial pressures placed upon couples. It is often widely reported that after the Christmas break, many couples decide to separate or divorce.
It is therefore not surprising that online trends seem to show an increase in the number of people researching divorce and seeking legal advice in January.
The breakdown of a relationship is a difficult time for both parties and no one single approach is right for everyone.
There are many ways that couples can resolve any disputes including mediation and collaborative law.

A notable peak is also evident in data provided by Google Trends, which shows January 2016 and January 2012 as the two most popular months for divorce searches in the last decade. However, the trends report also shows that there are peaks in other months, such as May and August. Interestingly, Google's data shows that December is a consistent trough for divorce searches.
