Divorce Day

Inside DivorceA new website has been launched today "for those experiencing relationship breakdown, divorce and moving on". "provides day to day information on a variety of legal, financial and lifestyle issues relevant to those finding themselves in relationship difficulties" and comprises various useful resources including news, advice and a forum.

To coincide with the launch, Inside Divorce has published the results of a survey it commissioned on the 'state of marriage and divorce in 2007 Britain', including reasons for relationship breakdown, where people turn for help and advice and, most interestingly, the views of children. A press release summarizing the findings of the survey can be found here. The headline grabber, though, is that according to the research today is the day when more people embark on the road to divorce than any other day of the year.

[Edit: When I posted the above, I hadn't really noticed the strapline attached to the site's logo: "Winning the life you want". I am a little concerned about this, and am reminded of paragraph 4 of Resolution's Code of Practice: "You should encourage the search for fair solutions and discourage the attitude that a family dispute is a contest in which there are 'winners' and 'losers'". The word 'winning' may be appropriate when considering other aspects of relationship breakdown, but I don't think it is when considering the legal aspect.]
