How to Apply for a Divorce Online?
Thousands of individuals are turning to the internet instead of their local high-street in order to obtain a divorce.
With that said, many still have their reservations when it comes to buying legal services online, which is completely understandable. Hopefully, this article will clear up some of those current reservations.
Before starting your application you must ensure you are eligible to divorce.
You can get an online divorce in England and Wales if:
- You have valid grounds for divorce.
- You are in agreement to the divorce.
- Your marriage has lasted at least 12 months.
- You see England or Wales as your permanent home or be domiciled in England or Wales if you live abroad.
The main questions we receive here at Quicke Divorce are as follows:
1.Why are we able to charge low fixed fee rates?
We are able to charge low fixed fee rates because we are an online firm. Therefore we do not have a fancy reception or even a receptionist to pay, our printing costs are minimal and various other costs that are involved with running a high-street firm are reduced.
But the main reason is that we don’t believe you should pay over the odds, if you are in agreement to the divorce, instructing a solicitor is unnecessary and you can, therefore, apply for a divorce online or do it yourself with our help.
An agreed divorce using a solicitor will likely cost you over £1,000 + VAT, which is rather unnecessary.
Our clients each typically save over £750 compared to quotes they received from local divorce solicitors.
2.What’s the difference between online vs high street?
The divorce procedure for divorcing online or using a traditional solicitor is exactly the same. Anyone that applies for divorce in England & Wales needs to follow the same divorce process.
An online divorce allows clients to live their life without having to take time out of their busy schedules to visit their solicitor. Anything you need to do for your divorce can all be done via phone, email, skype, WhatsApp and live chat.
There is simply no need to attend a physical office.
