When I went through my divorce I found a solicitor who offered fixed fee divorces. She took care of everything and made the whole process very simple, even when my ex tried to make it difficult! I know you can do it yourself by getting the relevant forms online but I have no experience of that so cant offer any advice, sorry.
Might be worth seeing if you are eligible for legal aid.
From personal experience, I’d suggest seeing a Solicitor who has been recommended and letting them guide you through the process rather than doing it yourself. I had my first session with a Solicitor today. I went in feeling apprehensive. I came out feeling positive and reassured that this Solicitor will fight my corner.
I looked on the internet for Solicitors in my area and asked friends. I have looked on the government website for information about legal aid but still haven’t found the information I am looking for.
It’s worth asking about their fees beforehand.
