Leeds-based Stowe Family Law, the UK’s largest specialist family law firm, has conducted a study that reveals divorce rates for every postcode in the UK.
Using historical divorce data, the study has revealed how successful marriages are in every town and city in the UK, and how likely they are to end in divorce, based on where people live.
The study uses an interactive database, loaded with publicly available UK divorce data to compare the volume of divorce applications by postcode to the national average divorce rate revealing how likely couples will stay married based on where they live.
- Overall, Leeds has a divorce rate that is 9.5% below the national average.
- The LS28 postcode area has the highest divorce rate which is 141% higher than the national average.
- The Leeds postcode area LS6 the highest marriage success rate with a divorce rate that is 45% below the national average.

Louise Chipchase, Managing 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 Leeds 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.”
