Online Divorce: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly
- Accessibility – it’s usually a good thing for the public to have easy access to remedies only the court can provide, such as divorce. With the ending of family legal aid for most people the public need to have the tools to start legal processes themselves.
- There is limited guidance as to what allegations you should and should not make or whether it’s a good idea to name a third party. Generally speaking the emotional manner in which you start a divorce is how it will continue and that can be a bad thing.
- Did you know that getting a decree absolute of divorce does not terminate your financial liability to each other? No, well that’s the ugly truth. You need a separate document for that called a ‘Clean Break Order’ and the online process doesn’t provide that.
