Here is a really interesting infographic about divorce in the UK. Of course, if you face a divorce situation, no amount of statistics is going to make you feel significantly better but these figures are interesting, appearing to show perhaps a trend for more divorce in less affluent areas of the country, that the peak age for a divorce, taking into account both men and women is in the 25-35 age bracket and that women will cite unreasonable behaviour more than men as a ground for divorce (of course remembering that divorce is essentially not fault based in England & Wales).

Many prospective divorce clients are understandably concerned about time to finalise all issues. Whilst there is no method of short circuiting the actual divorce, which, taking into account the 2 stage process of decree nisi and then decree absolute and that there must be a delay of 6 weeks before the decree absolute can be applied for, will take a minimum of 3-4 months in total, issues over finances and children can take a lot longer to be finalised.
As the infographic clearly shows, mediated settlements not only tend to be cheaper and reduce ongoing friction, but they are also significantly quicker in terms if enabling the parties to start getting on with the rest of their lives.
