Not the perfect present for your beloved
Are you fed up of your useless/philandering/other reason (delete as applicable) spouse but still have no idea what to get them? Then fear not, London law firm Lloyd Platt & Company may have the perfect gift for you.
The company is offering divorce gift voucher which offer couples half-hour or hour-long advice sessions with a lawyer. A snip at just £125 plus VAT.
Senior partner Vanessa Lloyd Platt said: “Christmas can be a very stressful time for families as we have always seen by the huge increase of people seeking advice in January. The vouchers seem to appeal to an enormously wide spread spectrum of people looking for that ‘must have’ gift for Christmas. We hope through the vouchers that we can offer clients all the practical options available to them – divorce being only one of the options.”
Hmm while a lot of couples are truly miserable, especially so at Christmas when close proximity with (un)loved ones can push a fragile relationship over the edge. Still I can’t help but think that Lloyd Platt & Company are angling for happy or just an extra profitable New Year...
