As an online divorce provider we hear a lot of different reasons from our clients for divorce. The main reasons are infidelity, poor communication or lack of commitment. Other reasons that surface are a change in priorities, failed expectations or money.
If the situation arises where two people feel they cant be married any longer, the easiest solution is online divorce.
You can get divorced online from £68, also minus letters going from solicitor to solicitor. Compared to traditional methods of divorce, online divorce is easier and more convenient than numerous letters, phone calls and court appearances. It has also proven extremely helpful for couples who have already firmly decided to part ways.
The main benefit to online divorce is that it saves both parties a large some of money. Although the parties will have to pay an initial amount of money for the service they’re receiving, the cost will be a significant amount less than a normal divorce procedure.
Another advantage of online divorce is that the online divorce proceedings are available from anywhere as long as the computer or laptop is connected to the internet. This is more convenient if you are at work for most of the day, or home etc.
Online divorce lawyers are another great benefit because they are proffesional, who are not just interested solely on the divorce case, but some aspects of the law which can be affected by the divorce.
For really inconvenient situations as divorce in general, it is important to take advantage of tools and options to help you through it and make it easier for yourself, this is why online divorce is such a must. Online divorce is a really popular option due to the benefits you gain from it, and there are no other services quite like it.

Since the 1800′s, the rate of divorces have risen by a significant amount . The number of divorces in England and Wales in 2012 was 119,589, which is an increase of 4.9% since 2009.
The peaks of divorce in England and Wales are early 1980′s, 1990′s, 2000′s and now there has been another increase. The common factor between them all- Recession.
When I needed to get a divorce, I was haunted by the media telling us how divorces in the public eye dragged on for so long. I didn’t want to constantly be waiting to recieve various letters from lawyers etc, so I decided to research divorce online to see if there was anything I could do to make the whole ordeal a lot simpler.
A friend of mine suggested online divorce- which didn’t sound too appealing at first. Until I went to www.onlinedivorce.org.uk, where you can get divorced from £68- ‘if only marriage was this simple’!
Divorces in the public eye seem to have an awful lot of opinions and assumptions around them- which is why online divorce is good because it is much more discreet and personal. Marriages are usually something you’d want to share with the whole world- where as divorces can be the complete opposite.
Although online divorces don’t solve everything- the disagreements, arguments, and angry feelings. But I need to give online divorce as much credit as I can, because it saved me a lot of time and money; which is what most of us want more of.
I would definitely recommend online divorce to a friend. Only of course if the marriage was un-fixable!

Probably because it’s the industry we’re in, but I am fascinated by statistics around marriage and divorce. Here in the UK, we have seen a slight decline in divorce rates over the past few years ( only marginal, but a decline nevertheless ), which on the face of it sounds good, but this needs to be coupled with the fact that the rate of marriage has declined at an even more rapid rate.
So as a ratio, the divorce to marriage ratio is actually at nearly an all time high. As ever, it seems that we could be just mimicking what the US has been seeing for a while.
Marriage rates in the United States have been declining for decades.
In 1920, the national rate was 12 marriages per 1,000 residents, and the figure peaked in 1940 at 12.1 percent. In Florida, the rate in 1940 was even higher, at 17.1 marriages per 1,000 residents.
The national marriage rate dropped to 6.8 per 1,000 residents in 2009, the most recent year for which statistics are available. In Florida, the marriage rate was 7.3, an all-time low, in 2010, according to the Florida Department of Health.
Divorce rates have increased over the same period. The national rate was 1.6 per 1,000 residents in 1930; in Florida, the divorce rate was 2.5.
The national divorce figure was 3.4 in 2009. It was even higher in Florida, at 4.2 per 1,000 residents.
Divorce rates peaked about 1980 both nationally and in Florida, and the rates have eased significantly since then.
Even that trend, though, is not enough to offset the decline in marriages.
In Polk County, the total number of marriages recorded remained fairly stable from 1998 through 2007, though steady population growth means the marriage rate dropped off.
But even the raw marriage numbers have plummeted in the past four years.
Polk County had 3,354 recorded marriages in 2011, compared with 4,029 in 2007, according to the Florida Department of Health.
The recent trend is even more striking when statistics for divorce and marriage are compared. In 2005, there were nearly twice as many marriages as divorces.
By 2011, divorces equated to 76.2 percent of marriages. Through June of this year, the correspondence is 77.5 percent.

It seems remarkable that the much publicised divorce and separation of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries is set to roll on for much longer than the actual 72 days that they spent married.
The latest news about the divorce is that model and reality TV show star Kim, is dragging her heels on getting all the legal team and documentation together – the reason behind the delay is still unknown, as there isn’t an obvious benefit to her dragging the process out.
Early rumours that the marriage and subsequent divorce was nothing more than an elaborate publicity stunt have been heavily denied by both of the parties involved, and as the cost of the whole process escalates, it does seem unliklely. Kardashians lawyer, Laura Wasser, has refuted claims they have been holding the process up, and has even said they have so far spent $250,000 in legal fee’s – unlikely that they would spend this much just for a publicity stunt!!
Kris himself maintains he was set up in a bid to get higher ratings for the Kardashians TV show. In a move that has stunned followers of the drama, he is set to call Kardashians mum as a witness as well as her new boyfriend, Rapper Kanye West!
However this ends, we’re pretty sure that the process will be interesting, and the legal jousting that is about to ensue will be cut throat.
Surely they could have just come to www.onlinedivorce.org.uk and got it all sorted out for £68!

On a daily basis I have a look at how people come to this website, and I am continually surprised by the searches people make to find the site – over the last few weeks there has been a surge in the number of people looking for a Cheap Divorce.
It makes sense in essence, after all, at this time of year and with a recession still hanging around, if you are looking to go your separate ways then I guess a cheap divorce is better than a costly and financially crippling divorce!!
So what are the options for a cheap divorce? Well, the most obvious is to take a DIY divorce package which will cost just £68 – but there are caveats to taking this divorce. If there are possessions and money to contest, then a DIY divorce maybe cheap to process but could cost you more in the long run. Decent legal advice may ensure that you get half of the Porsche Boxter that you’re legally entitled too.
There are options in between the value of a DIY divorce and the wallet busting cost of a full blow divorce though. For example, we offer a managed divorce service. This has the benefit of our qualified paralegals managing your divorce process, making sure you get the right advice for your situation. The cost of this runs into hundreds rather than thousands of pounds, and I would wholeheartedly recommend it for anyone who’s divorce is even a little bit complicated.
You see, the point i’m trying to make here is that cheap is not necessarily right, and could even represent a false economy. If you’re unsure, why not contact us here at onlinedivorce.org.uk and have a chat with one of our advisors. That way you can ensure you save your money and get the right advice!

I’ve probably mentioned this throughout the site about 50 times, but I feel its really important that people realise the value of getting a DIY divorce package over a normal divorce from a normal solicitor. If your divorce qualifies as being proceed able with a DIY Divorce ( and if you’re not sure, just contact us here at online divorce and we can advise you – free of charge ), then it will cost you just £68, everything included, for your divorce to be processed and made official.
Compare that to a high street solicitor, and you will find that the saving is well over £1000 in most cases. So the next obvious question is why is it so cheap and is it “official”?
Well, we can offer the service so cheaply because it is low cost and efficient to process a DIY divorce. A solicitor would not advise you that you qualify for a DIY divorce, because he would lose money. The fact of the matter is, that an awful lot of divorces could be done as DIY, but unfortunately, couples do not get the correct advice. We pre qualify our customers by asking the right questions at the right time.
In terms of how official it is – I must stress – a divorce done by us is exactly the same as a divorce processed by any law firm in the land. All divorces end up having to be “authorised” by a judge, and that’s what happens with all ours. I would also mention that we now have well over 3000 satisfied customers!!
If you are still unsure, than please do contact us – it could be the best decision you make!

So a rather worrying statistic that was released today is that one third of all children lose contact with their fathers following their parents divorce. I can get my head round the fact that it is the fathers that they lose contact with as an overwhelming majority of children reside with their mother following a breakup, but what does astound me is that the figure is 30% – that’s 1 in 3 children who experience a divorce somehow end up being estranged from their father.
I am in no position to preach to anyone as to how to operate their family, and EVERY single divorce case is different, believe me I have seen enough of them, but it does feel as if something is fundamentally wrong for this statistic to be true.
What also worrys me is that the article goes on to report that these children have a high statistical propensity to go on to self harm or become suicidal. Thats just horrible.
I’m sorry to start the Monday off on such a bad note, but when children become the victims of a divorce, it does stop and make you think – at least I hope it does.

Regular readers of this blog will know how much I champion online divorce and have very good reason to do so! However, an article I read today was a good example of online divorce gone wrong!! Not in the sense of online divorce as a service like we provide, but this has more to do with the announcement of a divorce.
It seems that R&B superstar, Usher, revealed he was to divorce his wife, Tameka Foster, online, before he thought to actually tell her himself. Tameka told US media reporters that she suddenly started getting phone calls and texts asking her if she was ok – she couldn’t undertsand why at first, until one of her friends pointed her to a posting by Ushing revealing he was divorcing her.
Understandably upset, it seems Tameka doesn’t hold too much of a grudge against Usher – even going as far as to say that she hadn’t ruled out a reconciliation.
She even made a semi excuse for the stars behavious by saying that they weren’t really communicating at the time – Usher was busy away producing.
Anyhow – to be clear, I totally think that getting divorced online is acceptable, however, announcing a divorce online BEFORE telling your husband or wife – i’m not so sure thats a good idea!!

I read with interest a story in the Birmingham Post this morning regarding the cost of legal advice and how it puts people off seeking advice in the first place. The report went onto say how 1000′s of people are not getting the justice or the support they need through failing to go and pay for correct legal advice.
Here at Online Divorce we have always included any legal advice needed in with the cost of our divorce packages. Clearly if the case is really complex and is beyond our scope – the sum of our legal advice would be to go and see a solicitor in the flesh. However, if you are thinking of getting a divorce but just do not know where to start to get things going – give us a call and we will be more than happy to help you.
You see, what is really important in the case of most divorces, is 2 things. Firstly, from a legal perspective, all the paperwork must be completed correctly – otherwise your divorce may be void, and you wil have to resubmit your divorce papers, resulting in there being more cost and time involved. Shameless self plug here, but again at Online Divorce, we include document checking as an integral part of our service.
Secondly, it is important that both parties are aware and can agree to who gets what. this extends far beyond the CD and DVD collection – if one of the couple just received a substantial bons from work, is the other member of the couple entitled to half or any of that bonus?
A lot of these matters are really black and white, but they are worth checking out.

So if the title of this post has not confused you already, congratulations. The idea for this blog post came to me over the weekend when I was reading this article – Divorce Article. Don’t worry too much about reading the whole thing, i’ll give you the jist of it here.
Basically its saying that in these tough economic times, more and more people are looking to utilise a DIY Divorce service to save money – however, the article argues, this is not always a good solution, as sometimes some basic errors can be made which result in the whole thing becoming actually more expensive – either by way of additional court fee’s or because a DIY Divorce does not automatically deal with ownership of assets etc.
This sums up exactly why I started Online Divorce – you see DIY divorce papers have been around for a while, but they really are full of loopholes, and they are a little tricky to complete properly. Part of the service we offer is making sure all your forms are completed correctly – because we actually do that for you, and making sure that they are served in court in the right way, avoiding a costly court fee and reappearance.
Another reason I started the company is I realised as much as I wanted to spread the good word about the advent of utilising the DIY divorce idea – it was not always right for every situation. We can provide that advice free of charge. Even if the DIY divorce package is not right for you, our managed divorce package might do the job which is still a bargain at just £169.
Its also worth making the differentiation that an online divorce is something different to a plain DIY divorce. A DIY divorce on its own is just filling out the paperwork and getting it processed. An online divorce, through us, means we do everything for you except sign the paperwork.
I hope I made everything a little clearer!! If not, then please do not hesitate to contact us!!!
