It’s common for family lawyers to see a significant surge in separation and divorce inquiries in the first week of January, following the winter holiday season. This is why the first Monday of January is often referred to as ‘Divorce Day’ among family law professionals.

In this 1-hour presentation, Ontario-based Collaborative Family Lawyers, Russell Alexander, Nafisa Nazarali & Jason Isenberg explore the history of Divorce Day in Canada and share their insights on some of the fundamentals of separation and divorce.

Attendees will have the opportunity to submit their questions to the panelists. The panelists will reserve time for a dedicated Q&A segment at the end of the presentation.

For those who attend and submit a question, you will be eligible for a complimentary copy of Russell Alexander’s “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Divorce: Russell Alexander’s Guide to Separation, Divorce and Family Law” E-Book and a $5 discount towards the hard copy. All proceeds of book sales will be donated to the Giving Fund in support of various community-based programs including sports, arts, culture, education, and humane societies.
