A Divorce Holiday

April 23, 2015 in Daily Bulletin

Wendy Paris wrote about the destination divorces business:

  • A destination divorce is when a couple goes to a foreign city or country specifically to get divorced.
  • The idea is that by leaving friends, family, and children behind, the former lovers can agree to an amicable separation in a stress free environment.
  • If things start to heat up, then either of the two could leave to, for example, get a massage at a relaxing spa. After cooling down they can return level-headed.
  • Companies that arrange such trips charge between $7,000 and $12,000.
  • The price includes the cost of the hotel, lawyers, and onsite mediation services.
