Divorce and Family Law Solicitors
For the first time in a number of years divorce rates increased in the year 2010.
The statistics from the Office for National Statistics(ONS) reveals that the number of completed divorces in England and Wales in 2010 was 119,589, an increase of 4.9 per cent since 2009, when there were 113,949 completed divorces. This gives a rising divorce rate to 11.1 divorcing people per thousand married population from 10.5 in 2009.
The number of divorces in 2010 was highest among men and women aged 40 to 44, a slight increase from the previous year.
Almost a fifth of men and women who divorced in 2010 had had a previous marriage end in divorce.
Speculation is that the economical problems have caused greater financial problems for couples, who have struggled to get over the worsening problems over the last few years. And it seems the Christmas period may be the final straw with January statistically being the month for the most applications for divorce.
However, it seems that generally people have not been put off the idea of marriage. The statistics of couples divorcing in 2010 show that nearly a fifth of those divorcing has had had a previous marriage end in divorce.
