How To Get a Quick Divorce In England & Wales Without Spending Thousands

We can help you achieve a quicker, more affordable and straightforward divorce from just £59.

If there is an agreement to the divorce and your relationship with your spouse is amicable, then it is entirely possible to obtain a quick divorce and avoid spending thousands on having high-street solicitors deal with your case.

Using traditional high-street solicitors to handle your divorce can end up costing you thousands in legal fees and taking up to 12 months to receive a decree absolute.

Dealing with your divorce doesn’t need to be expensive, stressful, or take a year, at least not when using Divorce-Online to handle your case for you from start-to-finish.

If you want to get a quick and easy divorce, you’ll need to ensure all of the below are in place or you’ve made steps towards making them happen.

The divorce process is largely an administrative process that is completed by the court’s staff, but there are many things you can do to help speed up the process in which they receive your paperwork.

Here’s how to get a quick divorce;

  1. Ensure your spouse will not defend the divorce
  2. Communicate with your spouse throughout the process
  3. Find your marriage certificate before starting divorce proceedings
  4. Find valid grounds for divorce and agree with your spouse
  5. Ask your spouse to complete and return paperwork efficiently
  6. Ensure all details on the divorce petition are correct
  7. File a D8 divorce petition with the court fee payment

Myths about getting a quick or quickie divorce

To begin with, other online divorce providers who tell you that they can get you divorced in less than 12 weeks are misleading you into using their services. It is impossible and cannot be done, especially in 2020!

It is also a myth that one type of divorce is quicker than another, regardless of ground or length of separation, they all go through the same court process in the date order they are received.

There is an obligatory delay of 6 weeks between the decree nisi and the decree absolute being granted to dissolve your marriage.

There are many things that need to happen before you can even get to that stage and 6 weeks is simply not enough time for that to happen, especially since legal aid has been withdrawn and court staff have been reduced.

Compare Our Service vs High-Street Solicitors

High-Street Solicitors

Divorce-Online

You need to take time out of your busy life to unnecessarily visit their offices.

Everything can be completed from start-to-finish online, via a phone, tablet or laptop.

Arranging childcare or time off work is an inconvenience that you’d rather not have at a difficult time.

You won’t need to need to visit our offices, take time off work or attend court.

Solicitors charge £150+ per hour, which provides no guarantee on the cost of your divorce.

Our service is £189 fixed fee, giving you clarity and peace of mind over your finances.

You’ll need to speak with secretaries or assistants to get updates on your case, which can be costly and frustrating.

You are provided with personal contact details for your case manager, should you need them at any point in your case.

It will be your responsibility to chase for updates as most firms don’t provide regular updates on your case.

We keep you updated via your online account, which can be accessed from any phone, tablet or laptop. There’s no need to chase us for updates.

Can I speed up my divorce process?

Most people want to get divorced quickly, but is it achievable? There are many ways in which you can speed up your divorce process, such as by agreeing on the grounds for divorce with your spouse.

Using Divorce-Online to obtain a divorce is the best way to achieve a quicker and easier divorce as we process divorce cases through the courts in 18-22 weeks. This is 12-14 weeks quicker than the national average when using traditional solicitors.

Speaking to your spouse before divorce

If you are able to speak with your spouse before starting divorce proceedings, it paves the way for a quick and easy divorce process. Your spouse is required to respond to the court, so if relations are amicable, the process generally goes smoother and can complete quicker.

Speaking to your spouse before and during divorce proceedings isn’t always possible, for a number of reasons, however, if it’s possible for you then we would always recommend it.
