The number of divorces involving children has fluctuated in recent years, rising to 64.3% of all divorces registered in Tasmania in 1998 after having fallen sharply to 56.5% of all divorces in 1991. In 2001, some 56.2% 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.
