Involving solicitors in divorce can prove costly

Going through a divorce can be a costly experience, so people should seek to do as much of the legwork themselves to avoid solicitors' fees, it has been advised.

The key is to make sure the settlement is agreed as quickly as possible, noted, as this will prevent further charges from being racked up.

Speaking to the Independent, a website representative highlighted that people should not feel inclined to give into their partner's demands, especially if they seem unreasonable.

They also advised to bear in mind that "the solicitor charges for tissues", so any emotional counselling should be left to friends and family to avoid being out of pocket.

Earlier this week, it was announced that the divorce of Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson had been finalised, with the assets accrued throughout their three-year marriage divided equally.

Court documents show the couple had not signed a prenuptial agreement.
