Divorce can be complex. Depending on the life situation of the spouses, it may include childcare arrangements, division of assets and financial settlement agreements that consider the input of both partners into the marriage and inherited wealth.
There is no requirement in law to employ the services of a divorce solicitor in London or anywhere else in the UK. If you so choose, you can apply to the court yourself. However, when a marriage breaks up, there is so much to sort out.
