Evolution Legal Concierge Comments on Rise in Online Divorce Proceedings

August 1, 2013

Cheadle, United Kingdom (22nd July, 2013) – Evolution Legal Concierge, specialist providers of legal services covering an extensive range of cases, has commented on the rising number of divorces being processed online.

The number of people starting divorce proceedings on their smartphones has increased by 50 per cent in the last year, despite divorce rates dropping by two per cent across the UK. This rise has coincided with legal aid cuts brought into effect on the 1st of April; since then, online divorce applications have increased by 26 per cent, while mobile applications have risen by 29 per cent. Experts predict that one-in-five divorces will begin online over the next year.

Evolution Legal Concierge only uses divorce solicitors registered with the Law Society, with fixed price quotes; this ensures clients only pay the initial figure stated without hidden costs. Clients can access various divorce services through Evolution Legal Concierge, including: civil partnership dissolution; cohabitation agreements; divorce proceedings; financial settlements; divorce mediation; separation agreements; and pre- or postnuptial agreements. They believe the cuts in legal aid may encourage couples to seek simpler divorce procedures and give greater consideration to what they want to pay for during the process.

“The rise of online divorce proceedings is to be expected given the cut in legal aid, as more couples will seek alternative routes to find the most simple, convenient process,” said James Scroggie of Evolution Legal Concierge. “Our network of divorce solicitors offer fixed quotes with no hidden costs, so once you find the right cost for your needs, you can rest assured you will pay no more than that—given the reduction in legal aid, this will be a huge benefit to many couples seeking the most flexible option.“
