A new online divorce system is being piloted in the East Midlands Regional Divorce Centre in Nottingham. The pilot, which can run until the 28th of July, will test parts of the system which it is intended will be made available to anyone wishing to issue divorce proceedings.

The pilot will allow certain limited proceedings for a matrimonial order to be filled in via the web. It is anticipated that other pilot schemes will be established which will allow for other types of application to be made online.

The plan to move divorce online is part of the government’s plans to modernise the justice system.

There is no news as to when the online divorce system might be rolled out across the whole of England and Wales.
