From 13 September 2021, the Family Procedure Rules have been updated to make greater use of electronic means via the online divorce system. These changes have now made it mandatory to use the online system where the Applicant is legally represented. There are some exceptions to this, including applications involving civil partnerships, judicial separation and nullity which must continue via the paper process.


Lamb Brooks has seen a number of benefits to the use of the online divorce portal. The most significant being the dramatic increase in the court’s ability to action applications. When using the online portal, the legal representative is able to track the application, take note of the courts progress and download all relevant documentation to be able to send to the client as soon as it is processed, further reducing delays.
