Simon Blain quoted in The Telegraph dispelling the myth of the most popular day to divorce

Family partner, Simon Blain's comments have been published in the Telegraph article entitled 'Revealed: The day - and date - you are most likely to file for divorce'.

In his comments, Simon addresses the theory that the most popular day to file for divorce is the Monday following the Christmas and New Year break. He explains that family lawyers have been trying to downplay this theory in recent years as divorce is rarely a decision made in haste.

Simon states that there is a correlation between peak dates and divorce decisions, however this generally occurs "at the end of the long school holidays which often provide time for reflection and thought when you take time out of work and get the headspace to make big decisions in your life."

Simon's comments were also published  in the Mail Online, Amed Post, This is Money, Yahoo News, Simple News, MSN, and the Evening Standard.
