GET DIVORCED IN JUST 24 HOURS
 
The new changes to family law could mean that couples will now be able to get divorced in as little as 24 hours under a new court shake-up. From the beginning of next month, a network of regional ‘divorce centres’ will begin work and most cases will never end up in the courtroom.

At present, an uncontested divorce costs on average £410.00 and can take up to 33 weeks to be processed. Under the radical changes, all paperwork will be taken out of the court system meaning a divorce could be ratified in between 24 and 48 hours.

This change is likely to be welcomed by all family lawyers who believe the current process for progressing an uncontested divorce is time-consuming and highly stressful for both parties. Instead, divorce centres will allow for the courts to focus on more important issues effectively such as emergency children orders and financial orders.

An HM Courts Tribunals Service spokesperson said: “Following the introduction of the Single Family Court, divorce work will be handled by dedicated regional divorce centres which will streamline processes, reduce delays and be centres of expertise for all divorce and financial remedy applications.”

What do you feel about the new divorce process?

Should an uncontested divorce be processed within a divorce centre or a courtroom?
