DIY Divorce or Divorce Solicitors – How to choose?

People who are thinking of “diy divorce” call Divorce Online are sometimes in ‘two minds’ as to whether to attempt to start divorce proceedings using an online divorce service or to use a solicitor.

Why a diy divorce is not the end of the world

Many people have read or have heard information from lawyers or their interest groups that the world will end if you do a diy divorce, yet if you browse the adverts on Google, you will see that lawyers have realised that people are not falling for their scare stories, and are trying ( often in vain) to launch their own diy divorce services, as the lucrative hourly rate divorce work is starting to dry up.

There are a number of specialist diy divorce websites in the UK and Divorce Online are the oldest and by far the largest, having launched in 2000, with the help of specialist divorce solicitors and Barristers.

The company was the first to have a publicised diy divorce, when Paul Wilmott, a derivatives guru, became the first person in the UK to divorce online.

Paul saw the value of doing his own divorce way back in the year 2000 and the service has since been upgraded many times over.

The introduction of divorce case management systems now means each client has their own unique case area where they can post support messages, download documents and see where there case is in the process at any time they want.

Convenience is the key in this technology-driven world and we provide access on all types of computer, mobiles and tablets.

Diy divorce costs £59 + court costs and includes all the required divorce documents, completed and checked to ensure accuracy.

The company also provides consent orders to ensure that financial claims in divorce are dealt with and dismissed.
