The busiest time of year for couples to file for divorce is just after the Christmas period, however two-thirds of divorced or separated couples with children have stated that their biggest regret about splitting up was the impact it had on their children, a new survey has found.

It’s estimated that one in three children see their parents separate before the age of 16. While experts acknowledge it is better to come from a broken family than live in one, this research shows not enough is being done to support youngsters through the break-up process

Other biggest regrets cited were the financial consequences (24 per cent) and the way the divorce was conducted (21 per cent).

Overall, a majority of respondents (61 per cent) did not regret marrying or cohabitating, despite it ending in a divorce or separation.
