A surprising headline perhaps but an accurate one according to the Courts and Tribunals Service.
Since May 2018 applicants have been able to lodge their application for a divorce through the Gov.uk portal which means people can lodge their divorce petition 24 hours a day/7 days a week.
As this is the first year of online divorces, it has unsurprisingly caught the media's attention. 13 divorces is still, however, way below the estimated 2,500 self assessment tax returns submitted on the same day.
The positive side to this story is the on-going digitisation programme being rolled out by the court service to provide quicker and easier routes into the justice system.
The introduction of "fully digital" divorces is part of a £1bn plan to modernise the justice system. The MoJ said more than 150,000 people had used online justice services in 2018, taking the total to more than 300,000 in the past four years. This included to lodge civil money claims, for probate applications, personal independence payment appeals and pleas in fare evasion cases and low level-motoring offences. Justice minister Lucy Frazer said: "These online services are already making a difference to people who use the justice system." "As we reach this milestone, it's encouraging to see people are reporting these services work well for them and are a better fit around their busy lives." The MoJ said the services do not replace existing paper-based applications, but provide a quicker, easier service for many people.
