Lawyers are very costly especially when property is involved . they will tell you to try mediation but for me it was a waste and mediators are not legal people
my ex hid his money and when he took me to court he still lied and got away with it.
When you contact solicitor get their charges sent to you . They charge ridiculous money like £60 email and £280 for a letter . My divorce cost £50k because you have to instruct a barrister to represent you & they they may be around 9k just for the day . Mine was 2 day hearing and it dragged on!
