How is our Simple Divorce service unique?

Our simple DIY service is unique as it has been developed specifically to address the withdrawal of legal aid for divorce cases in April 2013.

Unlike other providers, we don't just provide you with blank forms and a guide to file your own divorce. We complete your divorce petition as well, which is the main document in any divorce proceedings.

Prior to April 2013 over 200,000 people obtained help with their divorce proceedings. Poorer citizens could get the state to pay for a solicitor to prepare and file an uncontested divorce case.

Now these people have to either do the divorce themselves or pay for a solicitor to deal with it for them.

We have created a step-by-step walk through of an uncontested divorce so that anyone can file their own divorce without the need to pay lawyers fees.

Why should i get a separation agreement?

If you do not intend to obtain a divorce for some time then it may be advisable to obtain a separation agreement.

This document is effectively a contract between husband and wife and will enable you to put into effect any financial agreement you have reached as part of splitting your assets.

The agreement can cover everything from selling your home to maintenance for children. It can even deal with where the children will live and how often the absent parent can see them, although most agreements tend to concentrate on the financial aspects of the divorce.

The idea behind these agreements is that if there is a dispute, the court have a written agreement they can refer to when considering a disputed divorce case.

Can I draft my own Separation agreement?

Unless you have been legally trained it would be very hard for you to have the necessary knowledge and drafting skills to draft an agreement that would be accepted by a court in the event of a dispute.

Therefore it is always advisable to have a solicitor or someone fully trained to draft your separation agreement.

Are the Solicitors regulated and experienced?

Our solicitors have at least 10 years post qualification experience in divorce and family law matters.

All of our solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and subject to the rules of The Legal Ombudsman.

They also have professional indemnity insurance to ensure that if they are negligent, you will be compensated.

How long does it take to draft a Consent Order?

A consent order can take up to 31 days to be drafted by our solicitor. Each consent order is drafted to your individual requirements, we do not use templates and we do not produce generic clean break documents.

We try to deal with each consent order in chronological order, some consent orders take longer than others due to their complexity.

We have a DIY and Managed consent order service, which just depends on how much work you would like to obtain your consent order.

Can I draft my own consent order?

No, unless you had legal training, you will not be able to draft your own consent order. There is no standard consent order form or template you can use as each consent order has to be individually drafted using specific clauses and precedents to reflect individual cases.

Unless you have access to these precedents it would be very difficult for an individual to draft an order that would be acceptable to a court.
