Parents seek divorce solicitors advice as a result of school holidays

30th August 2013

The Telegraph reports that, according to the poll, 18 percent of parents said the summer holidays caused them to reassess their family relationship and, sometimes, to consider separation or divorce at this time.

Nearly one fifth of parents said the summer holidays coincided with an increased number of domestic arguments.

In London, where childcare costs are some of the highest in the UK, more than 25 percent of parents said that rows were more frequent in the summer than at any other time.

A poll conducted by the Salvation Army found that around four out of every ten parents could not take their child on holiday this year, even for one week, because of financial restrictions.

While the stresses of the Christmas holidays have long since been considered a time of increased relationship breakdown, the summer holidays may now become a new consideration for trends in high divorce figures.
