Solicitors firms should shortly be given access to the online divorce system presently only available to individuals. There have been very significant delays in the Central Divorce Courts processing paper applications at present so the digital system should provide much greater efficiency and satisfaction for its users.
A new component of the online divorce system being set up by HM Courts & Tribunals Service should help cut delays for clients, according to one of the solicitors testing the system. Currently only lay individuals can apply on the Get a Divorce system, via the gov.uk website. Law firms must still file paper applications via the relevant divorce centre.
