Law firms braced for divorce

Law firms are bracing themselves for a New Year divorce boom as couples stressed by the Christmas period rush to untie the knot. Some leading specialist practices reported taking on up to three times their normal number of divorce cases after last Christmas. And a survey for the information website Insidedivorce.com found as many as one couple in five seeks advice on divorce after Christmas. Lots of extra festive drink at Christmas parties is often blamed for causing a predictable wave of family misery that washes up in the offices of law firms early in the New Year.
