Stowe Family Law Bolton, the UK's largest specialised family law practise, has done an informational study that exposes divorce statistics for every postcode in the country.
The study analysed historical divorce data to evaluate how successful marriages are in each town and city in the UK, as well as how likely they are to end in divorce based on where people live.
Using an interactive database loaded with publicly available UK divorce data, the study compares the number of divorce applications by postcode to the national average divorce rate, revealing how likely couples are to stay married based on where they reside.
Bolton Divorce Rate
Overall, Bolton has a divorce rate that is 2.45% higher the national average.
The BL0 postcode area has the lowest divorce rate which is 1.60% lower than the national average.
The BL1-BL9 postcode area has the highest divorce rate which is 2.45% higher than the national average.
Nastassia Burton, Team Leader Partner at Stowe Family Law said:
“As the UK’s largest specialist family law firm, we developed this tool, to provide a fascinating insight into divorce rates for every postcode in the UK.
Interestingly, the data reveals that in Durham there are wide discrepancies from the average which raises the question of why that might be. There does not appear to be any single theme that unites those with higher or lower incidence rates.”
