What better way to drum some some talk for a law firm than to offer a free divorce for Valentine's Day. That's what's happening at an east Tennessee law firm.
The Powers Law Firm Crossville, TN , posted a press release last week saying that they "borrowed" the idea from a law firm in Murfreesboro, TN, noting they’ll be “giving away a divorce to the winner of this contest on Valentine’s Day." The press release also states, "Valentine’s Day, to some, is a reminder that they are trapped in a marriage they cannot afford to get out of, or for some other reason.”
To apply, the divorce must be agreed upon by both parties, and a story must be submitted about why they want the divorce. The contest is limited to residents of Tennessee. Whereas the divorce itself is free, the firm says if children are involved, "the contestants will have to pay for a parent education class."
The firm says it will select a winner on Friday, February 19th, and will be accepting submissions through Monday, February 15th.
