From what I am told (as I do little family court work, other than Guardian ad Litem work), when there are Christmas gifts to buy, divorce attorneys whip out their credit cards, as new divorce clients just are not coming in. The Christmas holidays are quiet for them. Then comes the first of the year, the credit card bills come in and the divorce client floodgates open.
I never have heard that the day after Valentine’s Day was another busy, busy time for those seeking divorces. Some of the dark tales of woe for the married folks are here: http://nyti.ms/dUkt4g Sure, it is a New York discussion at that website, but I will just take their word for it that the busy times come along.
Although our Charleston, SC firm (at http://www.grimcab.com/) does not show family law as one of our emphasized areas, I do Guardian ad Litem work, as does our associate, Laura Waring. Hopefully, you do not have the same sort of dark Valentine’s Day that the N.Y. Times blog describes, but if you do, call us and we can at least make a referral for you.
May you have a HAPPY Valentine’s!
