Online Divorce Fault
The outcome of more than 2,000 divorce cases may have been voided by an error in online form used to calculate financial settlements.
In a written statement from Parliament Justice Minister Shailesh Vara MP said that the financial assets of more than 3,600 couples were mis calculated due to the error in the self-assessment form on the Ministry of Justice website.
Those involved in the closed cases effected by the error may need to apply to the Court to re-open or re-negotiate different divorce settlements he said. The error in the divorce Form E was discovered at the end of last year but has been present on the Ministry of Justice website since at least April 2014.
