Latest Divorce Statistics for England and Wales

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) reported that in 2020 (the latest set of data available) there were 103,592 divorces granted in England and Wales and of those the majority (98.9%) were petitioned by opposite-sex couples.

That’s 4.5% less divorces than were granted in 2019 – however the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has reported that family court activities were affected by the COVID pandemic during 2020 and this may have impacted the number of completed divorces for that year.

There were 1,154 divorces among same-sex couples, an increase of 40.4% compared to 2019 and of these, (71.3%) were female same-sex divorces.

In 2020, the average length of marriage at the time of filing for divorce was 11.9 years for opposite-sex couples.
