Divorce Online. The web's the place - if it's not too tangled.
"An uncontested divorce typically costs 800 in legal fees. So is a website which offers a DIY service for just 80 too good to be true?
The Abington-based company claims that its website is now involved in the legal side of nearly 2% of divorces in England. In the hope of
increasing its market share still further, the owners of www.divorce-online.co.uk have launched an advertising campaign, largely in pub and wine-bar lavatories. ...

One-Tenth of English Families Divorce
Because of the Internet
"The Internet began one of the most frequent reasons for divorce in Great Britain. One of the largest marriage firms of England has carried
out a divorce poll in which 1 in 10 people of 90,000 marriages questioned have named the Internet as the main reason for the discontinuance of family
relations, failing marriages, and divorce. ...
... And, according to the results of the poll, married men and women suffer equally when their partners succumb to the Internet. In addition to porno
sites and games portals, the threat is also present in chat rooms and sites on the Internet that facilitate the search for old friends outside the marriages. ...
... The good news for these married people is that they can use their beloved Internet to apply for divorce online."

Why should we lose money and time
applying for divorce?
"Attempts to use the worldwide Web as an effective means of struggle against bureaucracy are undertaken constantly and sometimes successfully.
Today it is possible to fill in a tax declaration, apply for bankruptcy or to receive a legal consultation. And lately there are sites offering
online divorce services (online no-fault divorce). ...
... It is usually easier to marry than to divorce, especially if the spouses who wish to do so must divide their common property as well.
Divorce is extremely difficult business in rich families. For wealthy Americans in this case, it is accepted that the former husband or wife may
pay rather large sums of money for the divorce process. It is not enough that the divorce in itself involves strong emotional stress, so they also pay an
extra thousand on top of the $10-20,000 to lawyers to carry out this occupation, and sometimes it is even more. ...
... To terminate a marriage on site, a couple wanting to apply for divorce need only a credit card and a computer with access to the Internet.
The divorce case was finished within 30 minutes and cost $199.
People who hate discussing and relaying specific instances in dialogues with lawyers use the services of the site. In the virtual world of divorce, the couple that does not require court,
after inputting all necessary data for divorce, merely prints the forms, signs them, and sends them to the judge. That is all."
