Please don’t make this Divorce Day For family lawyers there’s no need to check the calendar to know when a new year has begun because the media will reliably report on the annual phenomenon ‘Divorce Day’. This is, I am led to believe, the first working day in January after the Christmas and New Year festivities when suddenly divorce enquiries will spike with various trite phrases such as “the New Year brings new beginnings blah blah”.
