It is that time of year again when the pressure to make a most romantic gesture is upon us. In Britain we spend over £880 million on Valentine’s day just to declare undying love and affection. The Beatles song “Can’t buy me love” doesn’t enter our minds at this time of year. We know from experience that no amount of roses, fine dining or chocolate can fix a failing relationship.
Believe it or not Valentines Day is also a time when many couples call it a day on their marriage or civil partnership. At The Law House we are once again launching our successful “Free Valentine’s Divorce” competition. Valentine’s Day is often a big disappointment for many. The pressure on spouses, especially husbands, to provide some token, a deeply felt declaration of love, often falls short of the mark, if they receive any at all. For some it is the final straw in a failing relationship. If your day is not going to be filled with heart shaped boxes of chocolates or a dozen red roses then read on…
Our offer is simple. We would like to hear your story, however depressing, strange, funny or heartfelt that has led to a separation. Please let us have it by Friday 13 February 2015. We are looking for the most compelling and genuine story. We choose the winner and that person will be charged no fees by us for dealing with their divorce or the dissolution of their civil partnership. The successful submission will be notified on the 16February 2015. Of course, all stories and the identity of the winner will remain confidential.
We know it is very un-British approach promoting what we do but given the response that we have had previously it has proved very popular. We believe the take up reflects the trend for more family breakdowns at this time of year.
To be clear, we will deal with the divorce or the dissolution without charge. This does not include Court fees, nor does it include matters relating to your children or finances.
Send us your story by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 13 February 2015.
