What is not included in the Managed Divorce Service?

  • Any divorce advice or work relating to the disputes, negotiations or court proceedings regarding child residency/child contact or regarding finances during divorce (assets and maintenance).

  • The court fee payable – a standard charge (whichever divorce service you choose) of £340 to lodge the divorce petition (paid when you file) and £45 to obtain the final decree absolute certificate (paid at the end). These court fees are per case not per person. You will need to pay the court fee directly to the divorce court, unless you qualify for an exemption from court fees because you’re on a low income.

How does the Managed Divorce Service work?

It’s so easy to get the ball rolling and to start getting divorced:

  1. Press the “Start Now” button above and then complete the order form and log in details.

  2. Make a payment via HSBC Secure ePayments

  3. You will receive an email from Divorce Online with a link which will ask you to activate your account. Click this link to activate your account.

  4. Log in to your Case Manager, which is an online visual representation of your case and takes you through the standard steps in your case as it proceeds.

  5. Complete Divorce Online’s online questionnaire.

  6. You will receive your completed divorce forms.

To start the divorce process, you will need to provide your marriage certificate (or Divorce Online can get you a copy, for just £15).


Call 01793 211 211 if you want to chat to Divorce Online's experts on how to get started.

In England & Wales you must be married for at least a year before you can start a divorce petition. In Scotland you or your spouse must have resided in Scotland for the year preceding the divorce, or consider Scotland your principal place of residence.

No, you would need your spouse’s consent. But if you reside in Scotland, you can divorce automatically as no consent is needed.

Yes, you can still get divorced in England and Wales or Scotland, providing that your spouse is habitually resident in either jurisdiction. The rules of jurisdiction for divorce can be complicated, but you can call Divorce Online and they’ll be happy to advise.

You will need a replacement certified copy of your marriage certificate. Divorce Online can obtain one for you for the one-off fee of £15 or you can obtain a certified copy from the Certificate Services Section of the General Registers Office (www.gro.gov.uk) in England & Wales or the General Register Office in Edinburgh, if you’re divorcing in Scotland.

Yes, you can still get divorced here providing that you are habitually resident and have been living here for at least one year.

The rules of jurisdiction for divorce can be complicated, but you can call Divorce Online and they’ll be happy to advise.

You don’t need to, but it’s advisable to do so. If you ignore the financial issues and later remarry, you may lose the right to have the matrimonial financial affairs reviewed by the court. It’s wise to get an agreement on finances and, if appropriate, obtain a 'clean break' Consent Order (not valid in Scotland).

If you have agreed on a financial settlement and want to get it in writing, Divorce Online’s DIY Consent Order Service and Managed Consent Order Service can help.

If you and your spouse can’t agree on the division of assets, then mediation may help.

There is only one basic ground for divorce: the irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. But you need to prove irretrievable breakdown by basing your divorce petition on one of the following five causes.

  1. Adultery
  2. Unreasonable behaviour
  3. Desertion (this ground cannot be used in Scotland)
  4. Two-year separation in England and Wales or one-year in Scotland, when the other party consents to a divorce
  5. Five-year separation in England and Wales or two-year in Scotland, in which case no consent is needed

Further information can be found in our article 'What are the grounds for divorce?'.

In England & Wales, when the divorce petition is sent to the divorce court another divorce form - the Statement of Arrangements for the Children - must also be sent regarding the children. You should ideally agree on the Statement of Arrangements for the Children with your spouse before this divorce form is sent to the divorce court, as you must satisfy the court that the arrangements for the children are the best that can be achieved in the circumstances. If you can’t reach agreement with your spouse, you can still go ahead with the divorce proceedings, but you may have to deal with the disagreements you have regarding the children separately.

If you use Divorce Online's Services, they will advise you if this is the case.

If you’re going through an uncontested divorce, no other agencies will be involved. Divorce Online can manage your divorce and the court will process the divorce papers. If children are involved, you may need to contact the Child Support Agency to confirm that the financial responsibilities for the children are met.

No, Divorce Online completes all the necessary divorce forms online, by telephone or email for an uncontested divorce.

No. All Divorce Online’s fees are fixed. However, court fees are excluded in the fixed price and range from £340-380.

All Divorce Online’s Managed Divorce Services will provide you with an expert Case Manager who is there to help you achieve a speedy, efficient divorce for a fraction of the price of a traditional solicitor. All Divorce Online’s services are supervised by their in-house lawyer.

You can contact them seven days a week between 9am and 9pm Monday to Thursday; 9am to 5pm on Fridays; and 10am to 2pm Saturday and Sunday.

Once you have completed the Divorce Wizard, your petition will be generated and checked for errors by Divorce Online. It will normally be sent to you within 24 hours of them receiving the data from the wizard.

Once you have completed the order form, you must provide you personal details to Divorce Online by downloading and completing Divorce Online’s easy to use divorce wizard. Once you have submitted your details, your divorce documents will be generated, vetted by Divorce Online’s legal team and sent to you step by step.

The difference is simple. With Divorce Online's DIY Divorce Service their system creates your documents for you and provides guidance, so you can deal with all the administration yourself. With their Managed Divorce Service they also deal with the filing and administration of the case for you.

The main difference is efficiency and speed. Most high-street solicitors only deal with a few divorces each month and don’t have dedicated systems in place, whereas Divorce Online has developed systems and processes to ensure that each divorce goes through as quickly and smoothly as possible.
