Co-op offers ‘quickie divorces’ online

from The Christian Institute:

Obtaining divorces will be made even easier following the launch of the Co-op’s online divorce service, in a move criticised as weakening the institution of marriage.

Couples can make enquiries online, speak to a solicitor over the phone and pay just £1,150 to legally break their lifelong commitment.

The Co-op claims uncontested divorces (where one party admits fault) dealt with in this way will take an estimated four to six months – down from the present six to nine months.


Divorces have been available online across the UK since October, after the Ministry of Justice decided it could help save £250 million a year.

While other companies have been offering online divorces since then, the Co-op will now be the largest and most well-known company to do so.

Tracey Moloney, the firm’s head of family law, predicted the change could result in a 50 per cent increase in people using its divorce services.
