The number of divorces involving children has fluctuated in recent years, rising to 55.2% of all divorces registered in Tasmania in 2003 after having fallen sharply to 52.2% of all divorces in 2002. In 2005, some 49.9% of all divorces involved at least one unmarried child under 18 years. This is the lowest proportion of divorces involving children since the introduction of the Family Law Act (Cwlth) in 1976.
