The Government is committed to investing over £1bn to modernise the courts and tribunals system. The modernisation programme has already started improving the experience of those who use and need our courts.
The public can now apply for uncontested divorce online, apply for probate online, make pleas online for low-level offences (such as traffic offences or evading bus fare), respond to jury summonses, track social security appeals online, and issue and respond to civil money claims.
More than 150,000 people used online justice services in 2018, taking the total number to over 300,000 in the past four years. Public feedback has been extremely positive with 82% user satisfaction rates for the online divorce service, 87% for civil money claims, 93% for make a plea and 92% for probate.
