Sample resignation letter for personal or family reasons

I regret to inform you that I will no longer be able to continue as Head of Sales at New Fashions Clothing Limited due to personal reasons. Family compulsions have led me to take the decision to resign from this position.

My newborn daughter is in need of care and I wish to take care of all her requirements. Due to her tender age, I am not comfortable about leaving her in the care of any other person. I was delighted when I was promoted to Head of Sales in May last year. But following my pregnancy and the birth of my young daughter, I am unable to compromise on the home front anymore. I know that the company placed great faith in my talents and I am sad that I have to leave after 10 years of loyal service at New Fashions Clothing Limited.

I want the staff and personnel at the company to know that I really enjoyed working with them all. I would especially like to convey my gratitude to my sales team for taking care of all my projects while I was away. I am aware that I was to join back the company a week from now on Tuesday, September 8, 2014. But I am now taking the decision to resign as I want to take care of the family and my newborn infant.

Please let me know the earliest date on which my services can be dispensed with by the company. I will be available till 3 weeks following my resignation for any last minute queries or follow up calls from colleagues regarding any key projects. I appreciate your offer of granting me leave for an additional 2 months, but I prefer to resign as this is more convenient considering my current family circumstances.

    I am writing to formally notify you that I am resigning from the profile of Senior Equity Dealer with effect from 24th March 2014. I will serve the notice of one month as per the terms of my employment contract. It has always been an enjoying and fruitful experience working at Traders International but I cannot continue with the job because of my personal commitments.

    I am going through a very tough phase in my life. My mother, my source of inspiration, is suffering from severe health problems. She has been diagnosed with the problem of aneurysm which can lead to brain hemorrhage any moment. In order to get the advanced treatment I have to admit her to Lilavati Hospital Mumbai where the treatment will be done for one month. Thereafter I have to be there with her at home. I have to fly Mumbai on 1st June 2014 but have decided to stop working early so as to make the necessary arrangements.

    I appreciate the opportunities that I received with this company during my working tenure. I would like to thank everyone for their kind cooperation. I wish the company lots of success in the future.
