In other Divorce related news, Claire Robson took part in the HMCTS Reform Event in respect of family proceedings. This informative webinar outlined HMCTS’ progress, future plans for the digitisation of family proceedings and allowed attendees to ask any questions. At the present time in Divorce proceedings, a Petition can be issued and a Decree Nisi obtained via online Application, without the need for staff involvement. The Court’s next step is to allow a person to respond to a Divorce Application online, with future plans for the whole Divorce process, to include obtaining a Decree Absolute, to be digitised. Plans were also outlined for how Public and Private Family Law matters were going online and how this was currently being piloted in four areas.
