Filling out your Form E? Enter Formily.

Expensive, confusing and time-consuming: completing your Form E is an essential part of the divorce process, but frankly, it can also be a headache.

The endless scrolling through irrelevant questions. The head-scratching legal jargon. Having all the answers, but facing hefty fees to figure out what the questions actually mean. The potential delays to your divorce – and mounting legal costs.

That’s where we come in.

Formily is the online tool that makes Forms E a painless process – helping you gather all the information you need to make your case, and nothing you don’t.

Step-by-step, we put the power in your hands – making filling out your Form E a cheaper, quicker and more effortless experience, so you can move on with the rest of your life.

It works like this:

Easily digestible.

We break down every section of your Form E into plain English – and pack each part with helpful tips so you can craft a great first draft yourself, with confidence (and without unnecessary input from a lawyer).

Effortlessly efficient.

Make unlimited tweaks and edits; save your progress and return when you like; and sleep easy knowing your data and documents are secure. Once you’re done, it’s easy to print and save copies of your Form E – with every bank statement and attachment included – ready to send to court and your ex-spouse.

Built to save you time (and money).

You pay a divorce lawyer for their expertise, not their form-filling skills. Formily lets you complete your Form E yourself, in just four short hours – when paying a lawyer to do this might take weeks of back-and-forth. (This helps nix any court delays, too).

Meet the Family Lawyers Behind Formily

Formily was built by Alex Woolley and Sam Littlejohns – two specialist family lawyers, who between them have filled out more Forms E than most. Hundreds, to be more specific.

Day in, day out, they saw just how daunting it was for litigants-in-person and lay clients to get their documents right for their first court hearing – and how much it can delay a case and escalate costs if things went awry. They knew there had to be an easier way with Forms E – and so Formily was born, freeing up time for litigants-in-person clients and lawyers alike. In their words, it’s a ‘win-win’.

Alex Woolley

Lawyer & Co-Founder

Alex is a specialist family law solicitor at a top London firm. Specialising in family law since qualification, he has had articles and commentary on family law published in numerous journals and newspapers – one of which led to the amendment of the government guidance to the Divorce Petition.

Sam Littlejohns

Lawyer & Co-Founder

In a previous life, Sam was a specialist family law barrister at the leading family finance barristers’ chambers in the UK and now works for the Government as a Senior Lawyer. He was shortlisted as Junior Barrister of the Year at the Family Law Awards; has written several chapters of the leading law textbook used by family lawyers; and has had his work quoted by the Court of Appeal as a definitive statement of the law.
