Divorce lawyers brace themselves as summer holidays come to end

Divorce lawyers brace themselves as summer holidays come to end

As August comes to a close and we look to the children heading back to the school, many divorce lawyers are bracing for a busy September.

But why?

Couples typically think that having the summer holidays will enable them more time together to work on their marriage.

This is not always the case.

Sometimes more time together enhances marital troubles. Add that to potentially juggling childcare for 6 weeks, the end of summer can also mean the end of marriages.

5 reasons why summer may spell the end of your marriage

  1. Summer can be last attempt

    Summer can be seen as a chance to rekindle and reconnect. With the longer days and warm weather, you could be thinking that there is a chance to have a break from marital problems and a beginning of a new chapter.
    But sometimes this can leave you disappointed when nothing changes.

  2. More time together highlights flaws

    Everyday life can overshadow marital problems, especially if there are children in the marriage. Summer brings a focus shift to family time. More time spent together and more time to think can test the marriage. Sometimes this can heighten problems.

  3. Children may leave the family home

    The end of summer can mean new beginnings for your children. Some may move to university. You could have empty nest syndrome. The empty house can cause you to re-evaluate your life and marriage.

  4. Some couples wait for one final summer

    There is never a right time to divorce, but it is not uncommon to wait for one last season (Christmas or summer) to create memories as a family. With the summer holidays being an extended period off school, some couple choose to wait until then to tell children so not to disrupt them during the school year. Some plan family holidays and wait until they have ended.

  5. Summer gives enough time to adjust before Christmas

    Divorce is hard on children especially Christmas times. Often couples feel that telling children in summer can give them enough time to come to terms with divorce and the adjustments that need to be made before Christmas time.

Whilst there feels like there may be no ideal time to divorce, it has to feel right for you.

Whenever that time is, we are on hand to discuss your options, with no obligation to do anything until you are ready.
