The research conducted by Stowe Family Law Wigan, the UK's leading specialised family law practise, provides an in-depth insight into the patterns of marital success across the entire country.
An innovative interactive database was used to examine and compare the number of divorce applications by postcode with the national average divorce rate, allowing for a comprehensive evaluation of where couples are most likely to stay together. This insightful analysis allows individuals to call upon valuable data that could help them make informed decisions around deciding where to reside when starting a new life and marriage.
Wigan Divorce Rate
Overall, Wigan has a divorce rate that is 1.69% higher the national average.
The WN1 postcode area has the lowest divorce rate which is 1.75% lower than the national average.
The WN7 postcode area has the highest divorce rate which is 1.69% 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 Wigan 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.”
