Cost of divorce rises to £14,500 per couple in UK

The average cost of getting over a divorce is now more than £14,500 per couple, a report from Aviva has found, up from £12,432 in 2014. The sum takes into account factors such as legal fees, setting up a new home or redecorating a previously shared one and childcare costs – as well as costs associated with starting afresh, such as getting back into the dating scene, splashing out on a new wardrobe or jewellery and taking up a new hobby or skill.
