We don’t wish to alarm you…. But Christmas is not far away!  Although traditionally a time for happiness celebration, for some Christmas can be a time of great stress and sadness – particularly those who may be facing their first Christmas following separation or divorce. The Christmas period is usually a time where families come together, so the prospect of facing the festive season as a newly separated person and possibly not spending the day with children brings with it loneliness and a sense of loss.

Relationship breakdown is by its very nature, a stressful time for all involved. Seeking the expert advice of an experienced family lawyer can assist you to make sense of what can be a difficult and confusing situation. Family lawyers can help you deal with all aspects of relationship breakdown, including arrangements for the care of your children, financial support, division of property and legal dissolution of a relationship, eg. divorce.
