"Sad statistics on divorces"
11 January 2018
The Reading Chronicle
Around 3,000 Berkshire residents will divorce in 2018.
According to the most recent Office of National Statistics’ figures, the divorce rate for opposite-sex couples is on the rise for the first time since 2009. Almost half of couples divorcing have at least one child aged under 16 living in the family. A fifth of those children will be under five.
Family law solicitors like me and my team, who are members of Resolution, support and encourage families to put the best interests of any children first, no matter what relationship issues might have come to a head over the Christmas and New Year break.
Moreover, seeking expert and confidential advice from a divorce lawyer does not mean that a couple will be at legal loggerheads. Resolution members seek to reduce and manage any conflict and confrontation.
