    It is still a sad fact of life that divorce is here to stay.

    In recent years, statistics have suggested that almost half of UK marriages will end in failure. The real cost of the relationship breakdown is not merely financial, but also emotional, however anyone who has been through the divorce process will know how costly court battles can be. However, one cannot ignore that it is not divorce itself but the way in which you divorce which takes the heaviest toll. For those divorcing it is both a personal and emotional upheaval.
