How to Get a Divorce Online with a Co-op Divorce Solicitor

08 February 2018

Co-op Legal Services are helping people to get a divorce online with legal advice and support from a Divorce Solicitor throughout the divorce process.

Customers don’t need to visit a Solicitors office, they don’t need to go to Court if their divorce is not contested (disputed) and they can start divorce online at any time of the day or night.

The online service provides guidance and information at each step, without any legal jargon. Customers answer a few questions online then book a call from a Divorce Solicitor to go through the information they provided online, to discuss their circumstances, to answer their questions and help them to complete any missing information.

The divorce papers are then prepared and tailored to each person’s particular circumstances. The main difference between Co-op’s service and other online divorce services is that each customer is supported throughout the complete divorce process by a Divorce Solicitor.

How Much Does Divorce Online Cost?

Co-op’s online divorce service is available in England and Wales only for spouses which agree to the divorce, which is called an uncontested divorce (which means not disputed). Contested divorce (disputed) and additional legal services are available from our Divorce Solicitors at a fixed hourly rate.

Once we have provided you with a written quote for the agreed work to be done on your divorce, that price will not change.

How Does Getting a Divorce Online Work?

Co-op’s online divorce service guides the customer through a few questions to obtain the information required to begin their divorce proceedings. If there are any sections that the customer is unsure of, or if they have any questions, then they can leave these sections blank at this stage.

The customer then books a telephone appointment with a Divorce Solicitor at a time they choose between 9am and 5:30pm Monday to Friday, or on Saturdays between 9am and 2pm. The Divorce Solicitor will call at the agreed time to go through the information they have provided online, to discuss their situation, to answer any questions and help them to complete any missing information.

Divorce Solicitor Support throughout the Divorce Process

On the initial call, the Divorce Solicitor will review all of the information, ensure that everything is in order and confirm with the customer that they’re ready for the information to be provided to the Court.

After this has been confirmed, the Divorce Solicitor will send the divorce papers to the customer to be signed and returned. When the signed divorce papers have been returned to Co-op Legal Services, they will be sent to the Court.

The Court will then contact the customers spouse to ask them if they agree to the divorce. Once they respond stating that they agree, Co-op Legal Services will take care of the rest, finalising the divorce on behalf of the customer.

Unlike some online divorce services, Co-op Legal services is authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).
