Valentine’s Day can be a challenging time if you’re on your own, with hearts and flowers festooning every shop window, but it’s especially difficult for some people who are dealing with divorce at this time of year.
Each new year brings a surge in divorce applications, followed just a few weeks later by Valentine’s Day, but that doesn’t mean you have to feel alone.
In fact Valentine’s Day can provide a sense of closure – it marks the end of National Marriage Week, which began on February 7th, and it’s followed appropriately by Singles Awareness Day on February 15th.
That makes it the ideal time for moving on emotionally, especially if you’ve found it difficult to let go of your old relationship in the first six weeks of the year.
Mediators can help – we are here to listen to any concerns you might have about the separation process and dealing with divorce, including any obstacles and impasses that you have reached in the process.
And if you are only just starting the procedure of separating, divorcing or ending a civil partnership, mediators can be involved from the very beginning so that each stage is as simple and stress-free as possible.
Make a match with a mediator
It’s important to find a mediator who has a good understanding of what you want to get out of your divorce and of any aspects that you find stressful or emotionally challenging.
At Marcia Mediation we have a strong track record of working with people in all circumstances to help bring divorces to a positive conclusion, enabling you to move on with the rest of your life sooner.
That typically means less expense and court fees, less delay and less stress, and can even allow you to remain friendly or civil with your ex-partner so that you can both be involved in future family celebrations.
It all begins when you talk to one of our expert divorce mediators and we can start to help you with the first stages of the separation process – whether it’s a decision you have been thinking about for some time, or whether this Valentine’s Day has made you realise that you no longer want to stay in your relationship.
We know deciding to divorce is no small matter and that this time of year can be especially difficult, from the Christmas festivities through New Year’s and Valentine’s Day.
But with the support of our experienced divorce mediators, you can make a fresh start and begin planning for the rest of your year and beyond.
