(2) If you have children put them first when making decisions. Look at the Resolution website . Issuing a petition is not the most important thing to do first.

(1) Partner and Family Lawyer 's top tips would be: don’t make it worse than it already is. Get good advice from a specialist solicitor. Consider non court alternatives such as mediation.

(2) What grounds should you use? Does it matter? These are a few of the issues. In addition you should be getting advice at the same time about financial matters, and, if necessary, children issues.

(1) It is easy to sit at a computer and fill in an online petition. The procedure is not complicated. But should you ask for costs? Should you tick those boxes about finance? Should you issue without consulting your spouse or partner?

(2) The pandemic hasn't necessarily made this worse as the online petition procedure is quicker and solicitors are now able to use it. Remember this is only the divorce, dealing with issues such as finance through the court have definitely been adversely affected.

(1) The timescales for divorce were slow before the pandemic. Usual times of 5 months between issue and decree nisi had increased to 8. This was due to lack of resources and the failure of the attempt to deal with divorces through regional centres.

(3) Your solicitor should consider whether it is best to issue a petition immediately or start the process another way for example by mediation or correspondence.

(2) The solicitor will draft the petition and get you to approve it. Then a copy will be sent to your spouse or civil partner for comment before issue.

(1) The solicitor will need to take detailed instructions of your circumstances and explain the law and procedure. The solicitor should also ask you about financial and children arrangements as these should be seen as part of the overall advice.

(2) The petition may be sent to the court by post still, but there is also the alternative of an online petition. It is very different and may be considered a little impersonal but can be more efficient. We have all got used to meeting people on screen now.

(1) Yes, they can. The difference is likely to be that they do not meet their solicitor face to face. Instead they are likely to have a meeting on Teams or Zoom. Communications following that are likely to be by phone or email and not by post.
