Citizens Advice has warned that the coronavirus is creating an “enormous strain” on relationships.
Citizens Advice said divorce guidance searches had increased since April after a drop in visits when lockdown started.
Citizens Advice said views on its divorce webpage on the first September weekend had risen by 25% in comparison to the same date in 2019.
Data from Citizens Advice further showed searches for advice about getting a divorce peaked on Sundays.
On the first weekend of September, its advice webpage showed more than 2200 views. This was a 25% rise on the same weekend in 2019.
Tom MacInnes, chief analyst for Citizens Advice, said: “We know that this pandemic has put an enormous strain on people financially but our data shows that strain is also being felt in people’s relationships.”
