Court staff currently spend 13,000 hours dealing with complex paper divorce forms, but a ‘simpler and less technical’ online service has already contributed to a 95 per cent drop in the number of applications being returned because of mistakes, she said.
‘This means only 0.6 per cent of forms have been rejected since January.’
Justice Minister Lucy Frazer added: ‘Allowing divorce applications to be made online will help make sure we are best supporting people going through an often difficult and painful time.
‘More people will have the option of moving from paper-based processes to online systems which will cut waste, speed up services which can be safely expedited, and otherwise better fit with modern day life.’
