Resolve is the only online divorce solution that enables spouses to manage, and conclude, their matrimonial financial disputes online. It guarantees a final binding settlement at the end of the streamlined process, without the need for expensive and upsetting court proceedings.
The cost-effective solution offers both parties a fixed price and a simple confidential online journey that doesn’t involve expensive solicitors or court fees. It is neutral, unbiased and confidential for both parties, throughout the entire process.
For the vast majority of 118,000 couples going through divorce each year, it is an expensive, time consuming, confusing and often deeply unsatisfactory process. A combination of no formal legal advice or solicitors’ guidance and limited access to legal aid, means that there are significant concerns about the affordability of divorce.
Resolve has therefore been created by Jones Myers, a nationally recognised top tier family law firm, with a combined 250 years’ legal experience. It answers a real need in an evolving divorce landscape to provide an alternative solution to divorcing couples. It offers an online service that guarantees a conclusion for a fixed price, whilst ensuring expert legal advice is provided when it is needed. All of this is offered against a backdrop of a full suite of family support services.
With Resolve, there is never a need to use expensive solicitors or go through the courts.
Resolve follows a straightforward, intuitive journey. Whatever happens, it concludes with a guaranteed financial settlement at the end of the process. This could be after one or two mediation meetings, or following arbitration.

A bespoke, online software system that offers each party 24/7, confidential access to their case file and telephone support, when needed. The couple can move along the process at their own speed and check the status of the case online, at any point.
Each party selects their own advising barristers online, from a panel of barristers at St John’s Buildings. An independent opinion is given on the likely outcome and settlement at the end of the process.
A highly qualified family law mediator is appointed for the initial settlement meeting that allows for up to three hours of mediation. A second mediation can be requested, if no settlement is reached.
If a settlement is not agreed after mediations, both parties will attend a private arbitration hearing with an independently appointed arbitrator. A final settlement award is guaranteed after this hearing.
If required, a divorce pack can be downloaded at no extra cost. The pack includes not just the required divorce paperwork, but also a clear guide on how to complete the forms, with sample petition clauses.
