Description

Statistics on divorces have existed in Austria since 1884. Until 1938 the confessional marriage law applied, which defined the "separation of marriage according to the bond" as what is now meant by divorce. Since 1938, divorces in today's sense have been possible. Statistics on divorces and, as of 2010, on dissolutions of registered partnerships are based on the information on legally binding divorce and dissolution judgments and orders of the district courts of Austria. Since 2018, an additional comparison has been made with the data transmitted by the Central Civil Status Register. Therefore, since then, divorces and dissolutions of registered partnerships of Austrian residents that take place abroad are also included. The data are published according to the place of residence of the first partner. If this is unknown, the data are published according to the residence of the second partner.
