Dear Santa, Can I Have A Divorce For Christmas?

What strikes me as noticeably different this year is the number of legal enquiries that I've had about divorce around Christmas.

Picture this: "Merry Christmas and, yes, don't worry I'll send your spouse the legal notice for initiating divorce proceedings." Not a very happy scene, this one.
