The candies won’t be on store shelves this Valentine’s Day. The New England Confectionary Co., or Necco, had been making the popular candies since 1886. But the company filed for bankruptcy protection last spring. Ohio-based Spangler Candy Co. bought Necco in May. But Spangler said Thursday, Jan. 24, 2019, that it didn’t have time to bring Sweethearts to market this Valentine’s season. (AP Photo/Charles Krupa, File)

CROSSVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — A law firm out of Crossville, Tennessee, is giving away a divorce to a winner of their Valentine’s Day contest.

The Powers Law Firm says, “Valentine’s Day, to some, is a reminder that they are trapped in a marriage that they cannot afford to get out of, or for some other reason.”

Here’s what you need to do to enter:

  • The divorce must be agreed upon by both parties
  • You must submit a story as to why you wish to get divorced to the law firm
    • Submissions will be accepted through Monday, Feb. 15 and the winner will be selected on Friday, Feb. 19
  • Submissions will also need to include a phone number and an email address where you can be contacted

“There is no cost for entry. Contestants will not be charged for Mrs. Powers’ services, or court filing fees. However, if the divorce involves minor children, the contestants will have to pay for a parent education class.”

This contest is for Tennessee residents, and the firm says it has the right to limit the selected winner to an uncontested, agreed divorce with minimal or no child custody issues.
