If I Divorce Online, Is It Still Legal?
November 6, 2009 · Print This Article
Perhaps due to the newness of being able to divorce online, I quite often ask if a divorce processed this way is as legal as one done in the more traditional sense. The quick and easy answer is YES – of course it is.
A divorce processed online is exactly the same as if you went and sat in front of a solicitor and done the same thing – the key differences are that we process all the administration, there is no need to meet face to face – and of course it’s a lot cheaper.
The journey of all your paperwork is exactly the same in essence – you fill it out, it comes to us, we take it ( and this is something a lot of people don’t realise ) to the court and put it in front of a Judge, who signs it and makes the divorce complete. Really, all we’re doing is taking out the physical element of trudging along to see a solicitor.
The signs are that more and more people are starting to use online divorce services as an alternative to the more traditional route, and the realisation that you can have a DIY Divorce package for as little as £69 is definitely starting to take hold.
Of course if you do still have any reservations, queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact us – one of our trained customer services advisor’s will be on hand to take your call.
