Accolade for innovative Divorce UK iPhone app

Mills & Reeve’s Divorce UK is one of the top 500 apps in the world, according to The Sunday Times App List 2012.

According to The Sunday Times, the app can prove a cost effective solution for those considering the implications of divorce. “Given the cost per hour of legal advice, this app could save you a great deal of money if it reduces the amount of time you spend speaking to a solicitor,” it explains.

The app, which was one of only four legal apps to have been selected in the top 500, has now been downloaded by almost 1,200 people since its launch in July and received an average 4.5 out of 5 star rating.

It offers free guidance and tools to help you understand the legal, practical and emotional issues when considering divorce or separation. The Divorce UK app works alongside Mills & Reeve’s website and the Divorce UK YouTube channel.

Marc Saunderson, a partner and head of the family team at the Birmingham office of Mills & Reeve, said: “The Divorce UK app has been very well received, and we’re proud to be at the forefront of providing free legal guidance in an easily accessible format. Divorce is a very sensitive subject, and most people need time to absorb all the legal information and explore their options before speaking to a solicitor. Our aim with the app is to help people cut through the jargon and make an informed, unhurried decision without the pressure of mounting legal bills. It’s great to hear that it appears to be doing just that.”
