Inside the “Quickie” Divorces & Will-Writing Investigation: Why Jones Whyte is right!
July 25, 2023 By Niamh Finnigan Estate Planning,Family Law
Yesterday the BBC have highlighted that the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) is launching an investigation into firms offering “quickie” divorces and will-writing services. The CMA have confirmed they will look into claims of misleading advertising by online divorce services and pre-paid probate plans. The investigation will also cover the issue of will-writing services, which is currently an unregulated industry in the UK. Complaints include unclear information about the services provided as well as inadequate quality of service. Overall, the investigation aims to address consumer protection concerns related to these online services and ensure compliance with existing laws and regulation.
