Divorce Online

The UK's original and highly trusted online divorce service

About Us

Divorce-Online: The UK’s leading online divorce service

Divorce-Online was the first online divorce service in the UK, and was founded in 1999 with the help of legal experts and IT professionals, to create a set of systems, based on internet technology, that would allow people to undertake their own divorce proceedings in the UK, without having to pay thousands of pounds to lawyers. 

The idea came from people continuously asking our founder, when he was in practice, why they had to pay thousands of pounds to lawyers, when they had agreed everything. All they wanted was for someone to do the documents and not spend hundreds of pounds paying two sets of  solicitors to pour over every letter, phone call and detail.

Since 1999 the company has been continually trusted to provide low cost divorce services and in 2014 is proud to have been able to help over 100,000 plus couples to end their marriage with dignity and without excessive cost.

All our initial consultations are free and we can advise you on the most appropriate way forward, including advising on you on the grounds for your divorce.

As well as uncontested divorce document services, the company became the first online legal service to offer a bespoke financial consent order drafting service provided by experienced and qualified solicitors in 2003. 

In 2013 we now offer a range of services to suit all budgets from pure do-it-yourself  to fully managed solicitor services, as well as add on services such as discounted conveyancing, will writing and financial advice on pensions and investments, all provided by regulated and qualified professionals.

We continually invest in our systems and training to make the process as streamlined and efficient for our clients as possible. In 2010 we launched  DivorceTrak tm  an integrated document generation and case management system that allows our clients to track the progress of their cases in real-time and to communicate with case supervisors and solicitors 24/7. This means all communication on each case is 100% secure.

The addition of this system has meant that our clients can spend less time on the phone chasing for updates and more time getting on with their lives.

We are the only non solicitor divorce service to hold professional indemnity insurance to protect our customers and all our in-house legal team are Fellows of The Institute of Paralegals and are required to do compulsory continuing development and learning to ensure their skills are as up-to-date as their counterparts in solicitor’s offices.

We have been cited as an example of innovative technology, in many national newspaper articles and have won a number of awards for our services. Believe it or not, we were also the original worldwide source for the "facebook causes divorce" myth that has propagated around the world, and has been studied by the world's leading sociologists.

Our ongoing mission is simply to help UK consumers get their divorce dealt with as quickly and professionally as is possible, for a lower cost than solicitors have traditionally been able to provide.
