People are finding it increasingly difficult to deal with the side effects of the coronavirus pandemic and the impact of various restrictions on their daily lives, according to divorce lawyers and other experts associated in Koroporadna, an agency offering assistance in the field of family law.

Its members say that while the first wave of the pandemic in the spring brought families together, now the number of break-ups and divorces is increasing as a result of financial and psychological problems.

The president of the Union of Family Lawyers Daniela Kovářová says that even people who have held on and helped others are now asking for help more and more often, best by financial problems, uncertainty about what the future will bring and growing exhaustion.
