Lawyers warn against cheap divorce services


Published: 18th January 2011 - Category: Separation and Divorce - Author: Lynne Bastow

An article in The Observer outlines the pitfalls of using an online divorce service.

The article states that it is suitable for people with no assets, or children and who have had a short marriage.

I have seen a number of people who have used an online service and then have had to instruct a solicitor to deal with the financial and children matters so the perceived cost saving is lost.

Trying to sort out your finances without legal advice can result in regret and unfairness… When I first trained I was told you would not attempt to do your own conveyancing to buy a house so why your own divorce finances?

The message is from the President of the Law Society… it is her job to support solicitors but she does have a point!
