Marc Saunderson, Partner in Mills & Reeve’s Birmingham family team, comments:

“ has become one of the most widely used websites for advice on the divorce and separation process. The refreshed site puts even more information at the fingertips of anyone wanting to find answers at what is often a difficult time. It acts as a vital resource for that first important step in making an informed decision before appointing a solicitor.”
