DIVORCES INVOLVING CHILDREN
Over the last 20 years, the proportion of divorces involving children has been generally decreasing, although this decline has slowed in more recent years. The number of children affected by divorce has increased from 43,184 in 2008 to 45,195 in 2009. However, the average number of children by divorce has changed very little over the last 20 years, and stands at 1.86 in 2009.
