It’s Good Divorce Week

November 30, 2020

At AFG LAW we have been supporting this initiative for many years and are proud to be part of Resolution and their groundbreaking work.

We want people to know that there is #ABetterWay to separate and early professional advice is paramount – our family team can help you.

The Resolution-commissioned YouGov survey of more than 1,000 divorcees found that 41% of those who divorced within the last five years suffered mental health episodes including depression and anxiety. Worryingly, of those, just over half reported having suicidal thoughts (54%).

  • New poll reveals 41% of those divorced within the last 5 years have suffered multiple episodes of poor mental health, compared to 29% among those who got divorced more than 5 years ago
  • Poll also shows ‘DIY divorces’ on the rise
  • Majority of divorcees surveyed want to see early professional advice for separating couples (63%)
