The President of the Family Division Sir James Munby and the Chief Executive of Her Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service Susan Acland-Hood have written to judges and staff today with details of the new online divorce application process which has now been made available to the public.
They say: “As part of our £1bn reform programme to modernise the courts and tribunals service, we have been developing a simplified and intuitive online application process for divorce, which can be used by anyone without legal representation wishing to apply for a divorce across England and Wales, making the process easier to understand for separating couples.”
