“As predicted, Lockdown has led to an increase (5%) in the number of divorce cases started in the last quarter of 2020. This is not, though,  quite the catastrophic rise predicted by some, with many couples probably holding off from divorce proceedings in the hope of  reassessing their relationships once some form of post-Lockdown normality is established. What is truly shocking, however, is the 21% rise in domestic violence cases over the same period which paints a very grim picture indeed of many people’s (particularly women’s) suffering over the last year. ”
