Divorce rates are dropping in Spain - and it could be down to cost.

Divorce and separation rates continue to drop while the rate of annulments is on the rise.

According to a press release by the CGPJ (General Judiciary Council) in 2013 there were 1.7% less divorces and separations but 8.5% more annulments.

Unfortunately for the overloaded court system the ancillary cases that accompany annulments and divorces are the same; these include custody battles and alimony cases.

This drop in divorces, both by mutual agreement and non-consensual, has been attributed to, among other things, the expense involved at a time of recession.
