The Law Office of Perkins and Janis, a family law practice in San Antonio, recently offered key tips for those who are newly single and watching the days inch closer to Valentine’s Day. The two attorneys are experienced in facilitating the divorce process as well as supporting their clients during the experience. The attorneys recognize that Valentine’s Day can be a particularly difficult holiday to be newly single or divorced and provided key tips for a successfully single Valentine's Day.

"Listening to co-workers and friends talk about their romantic plans may sound like nails on a chalkboard and watching the umpteenth delivery of red roses may have you reaching for Cupid's arrow for a much different reason than intended," counsels attorney Amy Perkins. "Be patient with yourself and put yourself first."

Perkins and Janis encourage clients to determine their comfort level and take the necessary steps to protect themselves. If the holiday is causing stress or depression, seek out single friends or avoid triggers such as the office lunch room or other gossip areas. If the thought of being at work on Valentine's Day without a "valentine" is seriously upsetting, take the day off. Most significantly, the attorneys recommend counseling or a support group for those who are feeling lonely or depressed. Finding new activities (or re-discovering old ones!) to occupy yourself will not only keep you busy but will introduce you to new people. And lastly, don't be afraid to tell someone you do not want to listen to their Valentine's Day plans.

”Valentine’s Day is such a heavily marketed day of romance that everyone feels pressured. On the calendar, it's just February 14th so don't let artificial expectations create problems for you," said attorney Amy Perkins. "However you spend the day, take care of yourself. Whether you plan a spa day, a golf round, hide out or just ignore all the hoopla around you, you will survive."

The attorneys at the Law Office of Perkins and Janis are experienced in numerous key areas of family law, including divorce, custody disputes, child support services, pre-marital agreements, adoption, wills and much more.
