Chicago Divorce Inquiries Spike After the New Year, Say Studies

By Nottage and Ward on February 3, 2016

The first Monday after the new year always means a significant increase in inquiries by people who are considering a divorce. The trend is so well-known that in Great Britain it even has a name: “Divorce Day.”

Here in the United States, studies have found that calls to divorce attorneys rise 20 to 30 percent in the first weeks of the new year. Some attorneys compare it to a “New Year’s resolution.” They note that for many people, the conclusion of the holidays–plus the potential represented by the new year–are enough of a push for them to seek the advice they need to make a change.

Although as many as 99 percent of all divorces are settled out of court, most couples seeking a divorce are still wise to work with their own respective attorneys throughout the process. Your lawyer will take the time to understand your goals and desires and to make sure that your legal rights are fully protected while you work together to settle the divorce.

At Nottage and Ward, LLP, our experienced divorce lawyers are dedicated to helping our clients find a full, fair, and reasonable divorce agreement. We’ve helped many clients move forward with their lives and protect the needs of their children. To learn more, contact us today for a confidential case evaluation.

5 Leslie has been the strongest representation I could ask for

Leslie has been the strongest representation I could ask for in a very complicated, emotional matter. She has continuously looked out for my best interest and the best interest of my son. She is always prompt in getting back to me and in keeping me well informed about my case.
