Bury st Edmunds – utter shambles of a scheme. I don’t have any basic problem with the concept of divorce centres but the workload of the Bury St Edmunds divorce centre is ridiculous as it was established to cover the whole of London and the South-East of England, an area including some 17 million people, which used to be covered by about 45 divorce county courts, each of whom was already struggling. HM Courts and Tribunals Service originally said that Bury St Edmunds would handle about 40% of all divorces in England and Wales, although when she gave evidence to the House of Commons Public Accounts Committee, Jo Edwards, representing Resolution, put the figure at 45% and that there has been a doubling in the amount of time it takes the centre to process petitions, going from about three to six months for cases to reach the decree nisi stage.
Even if we accept the 40% figure, that still means that this one centre would handle a staggering 40,000 petitions a year.
When the centres were first established the government claimed that divorce petitions could be handled in as little as 48 hours.
In June 2018, the judiciary was processing applications for decree nisi received on the 19th of April. The Judiciary would then take approximately 29 days to deal with them, after which the administration staff would then process the decision within 28 days. If the application was granted a pronouncement date would be set for a further 4-5 weeks on from processing…..due to staff shortages, but the period had increased massively since then. The reason for the new delays……..staff shortages.
In June 2018, the CEO of HM Courts & Tribunals Service said “We know this is not good enough – we have been short of staff in Bury, but should have picked up the issues earlier – we are now using the extra staff (and help from other divorce centres) to sort this, and you should start to see improvement soon.”
….and we’re still waiting
