Sharp rise in number of children in parental court battles

Figures from the Ministry of Justice have shown that the number of children at the centre of legal battles between divorcing parents has jumped sharply in the past year.

There were 27,204 children involved in court cases in England and Wales dealing with disputes between parents over issues such as contact with a parent or full custody in the second quarter of this year. That represents a 14% rise on the same period last year and marks the reversal of a general downward trend over recent years.

Divorces were also up, with a 3% rise in the number of applications during the quarter and a 2% increase in the total of separations finalised by the courts.
