You are purchasing an online service.
Managed Divorce Services
Once you have purchased one of our managed divorce services, you will be presented with an online questionnaire which you must complete fully and accurately.
Your divorce application is created based upon the information you have input into the questionnaire. You will also email a photo of your marriage certificate to our designated email address.
It is important that you carefully check all details input into the questionnaire, including spelling all names, before submission. Easy Online Divorce reserves the right to charge an administration fee for any amendments required.
An experienced team member will prepare your divorce application before issuing you login details to access your application online.
You will check and digitally sign the divorce application to confirm that you are asking the Court to end your marriage and that the facts stated in your application are true.
You will remain unrepresented throughout the divorce proceedings. Easy Online Divorce will submit the correct information to the Court for you at the appropriate times.
You will sign a Letter of Authority authorising the Court to discuss your divorce proceedings with us so that we may chase the Court for documents and request updates on your behalf.
Easy Online Divorce shall not go on Court record nor sign any documents in respect of your divorce and will not attend any Court Hearings in relation to your divorce.
Our fully managed services are for consenting couples only. This means that you both agree to the divorce. You should not purchase our services if you and your spouse are in conflict. Easy Online Divorce cannot be held responsible for any relationship breakdown that delays or halts your divorce.
Our consent order services are for amicable couples who have reached a fair agreement on how they will divide their assets or who have already split their assets and want a financial clean break from each other to protect their future finances.
We aim to provide the first draft within four weeks of receiving your fully completed questionnaire (one week if you choose our fast-track service). However, this may not always be achievable because of the complexity or nature of the terms of the order.
It is a court requirement that both parties provide full financial disclosure, which is required even if you are not planning to split the assets. We collect the information for you and your spouse through an online questionnaire. One party completes the questionnaire for both parties. This is a fully transparent process, so both parties have visibility of each other declared assets before signing the documents for the court’s approval.
Even though it’s a fully transparent process, we understand that some couples want to complete their own questionnaire. We can provide this service and collate your information before drafting the documents for an additional chargeable service of £95.
Let us know if you want to add this service, and we will send your spouse a copy of the questionnaire to complete. Please note we are not responsible for making your spouse complete the questionnaire, and you must agree with your spouse to provide their information in this way.
A consent order purchased through Easy Online Divorce requires the collaboration of both parties. Easy Online Divorce cannot be held responsible for any relationship breakdown that delays or prevents you from getting a court-approved consent order.
To get a consent order approved, we must submit a document called a (D81) statement of information to the court. Both parties see and sign the D81, and it contains each party’s address as standard.
Sometimes, couples who have separated want to keep their addresses private from each other. If you or your spouse wish to keep your address confidential, we have a confidentiality service where we can keep your address off the D81 by submitting an additional document to the court with your address to be kept confidential. There is a £95 charge to do this (£95 each if you both want to keep your addresses confidential).
You are purchasing this service on the basis that you have not and will not receive legal advice from Easy Online Divorce on the terms of your settlement. We strongly advise that you seek legal and financial advice on the terms of any settlement you have reached. The Court has the discretion to request more information, raise questions and refuse to grant an order.
Our solicitors will draft your order strictly limited to the information you provide when you complete our questionnaire. We do not have a duty to advise you of the consequences of the order. You also agree that you will check your drafted order for any omissions or errors before we file it with the Court.
Our consent order services are for couples who have reached a fair agreement. If you present an unfair agreement (a significant imbalance of assets) and insist on it being submitted to the court, the court will likely reject your application and request a statement on why you believe the agreement to be fair.
In this situation, we can prepare statements and deal with the court on your behalf. However, this is an additional chargeable service of £295. Please note that this service does not include helping you negotiate an agreement or guarantee the court will approve a consent order. It also does not cover rewriting the consent order should the court require you to amend your agreement.
We reserve the right to charge additional fees if your order needs amending after it has been filed to comply with any judicial request.
Court fees are set by the Court and must be paid when submitting a divorce petition (currently £593) or consent order (£53). These costs are paid directly to the Court online using a credit or debit card. Please note that the Court amends these costs from time to time.
If you have less than £3,000 savings and are in receipt of certain benefits or on a low income, then you may be able to apply to the Court for fee remission or a reduced fee.
Please get in touch with us for further information. Easy Online Divorce does not complete the documentation for reduced fees or fee remission as part of their packages.
Sometimes the Court cannot find evidence of your eligibility for help with fees. In this situation, they ask for more proof, or you must pay the court fee. Easy Online Divorce does not provide evidence or speak to the Court about help with fees on your behalf. It is your responsibility to provide the evidence to the Court or pay the fee. The Court will not progress your divorce until they have a valid help with fee claim or have received the court fee. Easy Online Divorce cannot be held liable for delays caused by help with fees claims or the non-payment of court fees.
We have the right to charge an additional fee from time to time. For example, if amendments are required, which are not the fault of Easy Online Divorce.
Easy Online Divorce is an online provider, and all documents are emailed to you at the email address you provide.
If you require any documents posted to you for whatever reason, then there will be an additional charge of £35.00 for our postage, printing and time costs in this regard.
Easy Online Divorce will provide technical support via email to help you through the process of completing the questionnaires.
We will also assist with general queries regarding completing the relevant fields of the forms. However, we are not legal advisers and are not authorised to provide legal advice.
We aim to respond to all enquiries within 24 hours. However, if we require feedback from the Court, it can take longer. With each case, we provide estimated timings for each stage. As each milestone is reached, we provide further updates. We politely ask that our clients do not ask for updates before milestones are reached, as this helps us focus on processing divorces and keeping our costs low for everyone.
All documents shall be electronically sent to you by email using the email address you have provided us.
Every care is taken to ensure that all documents are up to date; however, the legal industry is ever-changing. Sometimes, Court Forms and documents can be amended or updated outside our control.
Any service purchased must be used within six months. If you bought your unused service over six months ago, you would be charged a reactivation fee of £95 to use the service. If your unused purchase is over 12 months old, you will need to pay full price for the service.
Sometimes situations can change as you go through the divorce process, and you may decide to put proceedings on hold. If the delay exceeds six months but is less than 12 months old, you will be charged a reactivation fee of £149. If the delay exceeds 12 months, you will have to pay the full price for the service as your service will no longer be active.
Use of our services is your responsibility, and due to the sensitive nature of our service, we do not send reminders that your services are expiring.
The time taken from a divorce application being issued at Court and receiving a Final Order averages seven months. However, there is no guarantee that your divorce will be finalised in this timeframe.
Occasionally divorce proceedings can be delayed for reasons out of our control, such as Court delays and spouses not returning Acknowledgements of Service to Court promptly or at all. We therefore strongly recommend you do not book or arrange events that are dependent on requiring a Final Order until you are in physical possession of the Final Order certificate.
All time frames are subject to change depending on the information provided by you and the complexities of the case.
We offer a 14-day cooling-off policy in line with the Consumer Contracts Regulations to decide whether you wish to proceed with services supplied by Easy Online Divorce, which starts on the day after you have purchased the service.If you change your mind within 14 days of your purchase, we will refund you the full amount you have paid, less a £35 administration fee that covers the banking charges we incur in processing your refund. The refund will be processed within 14 days of receipt of your notice of cancellation.
You may not obtain a refund if we have prepared your divorce application and issued you login credentials following the purchase of one of our managed divorce services within the 14-day cooling-off period.
The refund will be processed within 14 days of receipt of your notice of cancellation.
We understand that divorce is a highly emotional time and can be challenging to negotiate. However, Easy Online Divorce services are for consenting spouses, and we will not issue refunds if you become unable to use or decide not to use any of our divorce or financial order services after the 14-day cooling-off period.
All requests for a refund must be in writing to email@example.com.
We want you to be 100% happy with our services, but if you are unsatisfied with Easy Online Divorce’s services, you may make a complaint, which should be in writing and emailed to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will thoroughly investigate your complaint and provide a written response within 28 days.
Typically, we would reply to any complaint made by email, but we can provide a telephone facility to discuss matters of a more complex nature upon request.
