Increased Need in Process Servers as a result of Divorce Rate Rise
Posted on 8th July 2020 at 12:26
Research shows there has been a substantial increase in the divorce rate since the lockdown due to COVID 19 Coronavirus pandemic.
Figures from a Legal Services company show over a 40 per cent increase in divorce requests since the lockdown compared with the same period in 2019.
Divorce proceedings have been going ahead over video conferencing calls while the courts have been closed. The Ministry of Justice said most divorce cases do not require a hearing and that it is not currently noticing a slowdown in the time taken to process paperwork for online divorce applications.
This could lead to a substantial increase in the need to serve divorce papers across the United Kingdom. With over 500 fully approved agents CCS Nationwide is ready for this increase.
It is believed that the uncertain future, recession and job losses will put even further strains on already struggling marriages and the divorce rate could increase further.
As the lockdown eases the process serving of divorce papers and other important documents becomes easier for our agents to undertake.
With the cost of serving divorce papers and other documents on average being less than £100 plus the ability to serve anywhere nationwide makes CCS Nationwide the one stop shop for all your services.
