The Ministry of Justice have released a pilot practice direction 36E which will come into effect on 30 July 2018 and will extend the current pilot version of the online divorce system until 29 March 2019.

Following the private beta stage of the reform project launched by HMCTS, which ran from January to April 2019, the public beta phase went live from 1 May 2018. The scheme enables couples to apply for an uncontested divorce digitally via smart forms, removing the need to fill in paper forms and send them to court manually.

The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) say that the public beta phase is working really well, with over 2,000 applications received in the first month, with 93% saying they are satisfied or very satisfied with the service and the rejection rate remains below 1%.

It says the extension of the current pilot timescales will ensure that there is sufficient time to develop the next stages and to integrate with other common components.
