Section 8: Divorces and dissolutions of civil partnerships

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. Therefore, National Records of Scotland is publishing far fewer statistics on Divorces and Dissolutions for 2009 onwards than for previous years. More detailed statistics on Divorces and Dissolutions are available from the Scottish Government Crime and Justice Statistics website.

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