DIY divorce can be quick and simple if you do it correctly
Do it yourself divorce service? What is it?
A lot is spoken about DIY or ‘do it yourself divorces’, but what are they?
DIY divorce essentially means, when you don’t hire a solicitor to go on the court record for you.
It will involve you completing the divorce papers yourself, along with submitting the necessary forms to the court at the right time.
There are positives and negatives to using a self help service for £59 and like with everything, it should be looked into first before proceeding to start one.
A DIY divorce is not for everyone and should only be attempted if both parties are happy to proceed and deal with all aspects of handling your own divorce.
Solicitors will tell you until they are blue in the face that a DIY divorce is a bad thing, when in reality it isn’t.
The truth of the matter is that as long as the divorce petition is completed correctly, then the actual process of getting a divorce in England and Wales is quite easy.
The divorce petition is the main document in any divorce and has to be completed according to a set of rules, known as The Family Procedure Rules which were updated in 2010.
These mysterious rules deal with every aspect of the divorce procedure and the average Joe or Jolene would find them a nightmare to follow.
However, at QuickeDivorce, our experienced case managers know the divorce law inside out and therefore guarantee to complete your divorce papers correctly first time without any errors for just £59.
One of the big bug bears about people filing their own divorce forms without help is that they complete the forms incorrectly, which causes massive delays, extra court fees and work for the court staff.
Downfalls to DIY or ‘Do it yourself divorces’
We’ve been through the positives to using these types of services above, but now come the drawbacks to using a DIY divorce service over having experts handle your divorce.
- Incorrectly completing the forms
- Incurring extra charges / costs
- Delayed divorce process
What many people don’t realise is exactly how the divorce procedure works when things go wrong, which is to expected.
You’d be wrong to think that you can file incorrect divorce papers and everything carries on as normal, because it doesn’t.
In fact, many things can happen after the judge deems your divorce papers to be incorrect and most commonly, you’ll be asked to pay an additional fee of up to £120 for the courts to re-evaluate your divorce paperwork.
This obviously impacts the costs and timeframes involved with your divorce.
