CHARLESTON – The Webb Law Centre is offering its eighth annual free Valentine's Day divorce to the person who presents the "most compelling story."
The law firm will chose the winner based on its opinion of whose story is the most convincing of why they deserve the free divorce.
The divorce is limited to an uncontested, no-fault divorce with no or minimal child custody issues.
While the service is free, the winner will be responsible for all fees, costs and expenses associated with the divorce.
The divorce is limited to divorces with jurisdiction in West Virginia and current clients of The Webb Law Centre are ineligible for this free service.
Charles R. "Rusty" Webb said they have received one application so far, but they were late getting the ad out this year. In past years, the law firm has received about a dozen applicants.
"This was the first year we put the ad on Facebook and it has been getting some feedback," Webb said.
Webb said the ad has reached more than 3,000 people.
"This is a great way of reaching people who otherwise would not have known about the contest," Webb said. "We're reaching more people by incorporating social media this year.
Webb, began the tradition in 2008 and each year chooses the person who he believes deserves the divorce the most.
The law firm will announce the winner on Feb. 14.
