It is a well known fact that divorce can be one of the most stressful times in an individuals life.  In 2004 almost 150,000 divorces occurred throughout England almost certainly causing stress and worry for the 300,000 individuals involved. 
 
It is vital to obtain expert legal opinion during divorce in order to ensure that your interests are being looked after and protected.  If you are concerned about costs and are on a low income then you may find that you qualify for Legal Aid assistance.  It is important to know that not all solicitors offer Legal Aid funded work and you may therefore need to contact several firms in order to find a firm that may be able to help you. 
 
If you are concerned with regard to what will happen to your children and your visiting rights, or have been in a marriage and have suffered from domestic violence issues then again there are specialist solicitors who will be able to provide you with advice. 
 
It is important to remember that there are other aspects that will need to be addressed when going through a divorce that may not necessarily be legally related.  Such aspects may include your pension rights, your property, the arranging of life insurance in order to protect your financial situation after divorce, and the question of your general financial well being after the divorce.  A good solicitor will be able to refer you to professionals who will be able to provide advice on these topics. 
 
There are many organisations who may be able to help you during this stressful time including some who may be able to mediate between the parties if you believe that there is a chance that your marriage may be saved. 
 
Whatever your concerns it is comforting to know that there are organisations out there who may be able to help you.
