Online pilot divorce centre named

Pilot now underway

Nottingham's East Midlands Divorce Centre will host the online divorce pilot, the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has announced.

Last week the MoJ launched a Practice Direction, PD36D, published to support the first small online divorce pilot. At the time the location for the pilot had not been revealed. Today an MoJ spokesperson said, "I can confirm that it is being run at the East Midlands divorce centre".

The pilot began last week.

Tony Roe says:

"At this stage, we do not know the scale or duration of the pilot. I understand that the pilot will take the form of certain live testing which, I am told, will not be an accurate reflection of the vision for what will be made available to the general public."
