2015 saw record level of divorce applications

Figures compiled by the Law Society’s family and child law committee show that 2015 was a record year for divorce applications.

This followed a drop in divorce rates during the recession.
The committee’s research suggests that family law disputes may have been postponed during the economic crisis as couples chose not to apply for divorce because of factors such as an inability to run two households, negative equity in the family home, and a downturn in businesses.

Divorce application rates dropped by over 12% in 2009.
