Separation Anxiety – Qld is Australia’s Divorce Capital

The Facts You Need To Know

Most of us get married with the best of intentions – love, children, a happy and safe home, a pet to adore – and when the kids are older, growing old and grey together.

No one goes into a marriage expecting to divorce – but it happens. And if does happen (to you, or someone you love) you’ll understand why it rates second highest life’s most stressful events (after the death of a loved one).

The Stats:

  • In 2017 the median age of divorcees was 45.5 years for men and was 42.9 for women.
  • The average duration of a marriage before it ends in divorce is 12.0 years.
  • The Australian Institute of Family studies reports Queensland has the highest crude divorce rate with 2.3 divorces per 1,000 estimated resident population.

With Queensland having the unenviable title of highest rate of divorce in the country, it’s a huge relief to many Gold Coasters that Wiltshire Family Law, one of Australia’s most respected and largest specialty Family Law Firms is here to help through the toughest time.
