Any recomendations for online divorce companies?
How long have you been seperated (i.e. not living together)?
After a separation of two years you can get a non-contested divorce – basically you both fill out a form, sign and send it off. A couple of other forms appear to sign and send off, then it’s all done.

As I said, agreed a clean break financially, childcare agreed and working, ground are 2 year separation.
I’m not confident on the DIY although it does not look too intimidating, but i just want to make sure its right.
Wikivorse do their own solicitor managed divorce for 279 plus costs so just over 700. Just wondered if anyone has used similar companies and what were your experiences.Posted 5 years agofuzzheadMember
Seriously, go to your local court office and they’ll help you do it yourself. They can’t advise, but they can tell you which forms to fill out. I’m guessing you’re applying for your decree nisi as the kids/finances are sorted?Posted 5 years ago
It’s the one way I managed to claw back some self-esteem/sanity/control from my eye-wateringly expensive divorce – and it has the added benefit of not sending any money the way of the legal professionThurman MermanMember
Look at wikivorce for DIY divorce advice
It seriously is a doddle. If you have half-a-brain you can DIY. The courts are very friendly and helpful.
Word of warning: My ex and I were not in dispute (we were still living together), wanted to be amicable, wanted a clean break, and had worked out an agreement between ourselves as to how finances would be sorted, and we were both happy with it. Ours was a very simple case: no kids, small house, a few savings.
She didn’t believe we could DIY and got herself an adversarial lawyer who effectively convinced her that “oh, you can get much more than that.”
Cue the most stressful 8 months of my life as I got fvcked-over left, right and centre.

Do you listen to Rock FM Dave?
There’s an advert running at the moment. Along these lines.
Woman: “I’ve been having an affair”
Man: “Oh well never mind”
W: “We used our bedroom”
M: “Oh, that’s not a problem”
W: “I’ve blown all our life savings on the horses”
M: “Easy come, easy go”
W: ” The kids aren’t yours”
M: “Oh, I love them anyway”
The point being the bloke thinks he can’t afford to get a divorce. Until this cheap divorce team pops up.
Personally I think after all that if he buried her under the patio no court in the land would convict him but what do I know.Posted 5 years agotrevhMember
Some years ago now but when I went through it did it all myself with the help of the citizens advice bureau and they checked all the paperwork every step of the way. They were brilliant it is easier than you think and although a stressfull time you do feel a sense of achievement knowing that the thieving solicitors haven’t got there hands on your money.Posted 5 years agonumbnutMember
I used Warners here
Reasonably straightforward and i got quick responses to my queries from their solicitors. There are prompts as you fill in the forms which are then submitted for them to check over.Posted 5 years ago
If you are both in agreement to the details it’s more a paperwork exercise than anything else.
I was a bit of an emotional wreck through mine so it was comforting to have some support. I had plenty of advice from them on the finances (as my ex was being completely unreasonable) and because children were involved.
It starts getting expensive should you get solicitors involved in negotiating for you but some of these decisions can be with you for the rest of your life so for the sake of saving a few pounds now….
I divorced my ex for unreasonable behaviour which was uncontested. She was having an affair but it’s another thing proving adultery!
