Thinking of separating

If you’ve followed this blog for any length of time then you will know that here at LKW Family Mediation we are not a fan of media divorce myths and the so called “divorce day” is no different.  The statistics simply do not bear out the idea that there is a deluge of divorce petitions in January.  For those that do make the decision to separate in January it does a disservice to this difficult decision to write frivolous articles…

It certainly adds to the drama (and anyone who knows me…
