Section 8: Divorces and dissolutions

Please note: The Scottish Government (SG) Justice Analytical Services has become the main publisher of statistics on Divorces, and Dissolutions of Civil Partnerships, in Scotland, with effect from the figures for April 2009 onwards. National Records of Scotland (NRS), is publishing far fewer statistics on Divorces and Dissolutions for 2009 onwards that for previous years. More detailed statistics on Divorces and Dissolutions are available from the SG Crime and Justice Statistics website.

NB: There may be slight differences between the figures for some years that are published by SG and by NRS, for reasons given in a note on the Coverage of the Divorce Statistics, which is available via the Divorces and Dissolutions - Background Information page (available on this website).

Information about the basis of these statistics is also available from the Divorces and Dissolutions - Background Information page.
