How To Start Your Divorce Proceedings Online Without Hiring Solicitors
Processing a divorce application online has been around in the UK for over 20 years, but even now some people are still sceptical and unsure about it.
Online divorce is a more streamlined and efficient way to end your marriage compared with the traditional route of instructing a local lawyer.
How do I start divorce proceedings and why do thousands of people choose an online divorce over traditional high street family law solicitors every year?
How To Start Your Divorce Proceedings Without Using Solicitors
To start divorce proceedings in England or Wales you must have been married for at least 12 months and one party to the divorce must live in England or Wales or still regard England or Wales as their permanent home if living abroad.
Provided the answer is yes to the above you can submit a divorce application on the basis of the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage without any lengthy separation period or having to blame your partner for unreasonable behaviour or of committing adultery.
