January 8 is notoriously known as ‘Divorce Day,’ because of the spike in couples considering ending their marriages after the holidays.
January is, in fact, the busiest month of the year for divorces to be filed. Presumably, new year’s resolutions and everyone assessing their life as it stands – plus goals for the future, and avoiding upsetting their children over Christmas – combine to give people the push to make drastic changes.
Sadly, 42 per cent of marriages now end in divorce, with the average marriage now lasting just 12 years. According to data analysed by the divorce support service Amicable, more than 40,000 people will search “divorce” online in January.

We've always got our ears to the ground when it comes to interesting, useful and topical information relating to business and accountancy.
We love making videos that break down convoluted accountancy jargon into a plain talking explanation of the important facts.
In November 2002, having sold our other business interests off earlier in the year, I decided to set up Nordens Chartered Accountants. The easy part was knowing how to do it, as I had established and built a smaller practice a few years earlier, the difficult part was not following the traditional accountancy path. Having run businesses, both successfully and unsuccessfully, I wanted to help business owners resolve their short term problems and work with them to achieve their longer term goals. Business has always been my interest and I love that I can help business owners achieve what seems like the impossible every single working day.
