Christmas rush…

“Tis the season to be jolly” especially if you are a divorce lawyer….as every year law  firms are bracing themselves for ‘Divorce Monday’ when they typically see a surge in queries from married couples after “getting through”  through the Christmas period.

This has traditionally been the first Monday after New Year however a leading law firm recently announced that over the last two or three years they had noticed that people even enquire a little bit earlier between Christmas and New Year

One in five married couples are considering separating from their partners after staying together over the festive period, according a poll of 2,000 spouses by legal firm Irwin Mitchell.

Data from ONS indicates one in seven divorces is granted as a result of adultery, with the overall majority of divorces from first marriages (71 per cent) and almost half of all divorces granted in 2012 were to couples in the first 10 years of marriage.

Here at Eventus Legal we have specialised in placing Family Solicitors for many years and our Managing Director was the main recruiter for the leading National Family Law firm for over a decade having assisted in the opening of the majority of their regional offices.

In fact as a large % of our work is successfully placing family lawyers nationally we have launched a new side of the business namely Eventus Family Law where we have dedicated highly experienced family legal recruiters on hand to give out career advice and recruitment advise to both candidates and clients.


So get in touch before the New Year to avoid the rush………
