Do I actually need a lawyer ?

Basically the house is in negative equity and about to be repossessed, he has a pension which he's agreed to 50/50 split on, a few grand in savings but not much.
The children we've agreed to shared care, 50/50 again and child support of a third of his income.
If I can get all that in writing and into court do I even need a solicitor, I want a quick painless divorce.
Thank you

You do need to get a financial consent order so all the financials are set in stone and nobody can change their mind about them. It does seem to be easier to do that with a solicitor as the form uses lots of abreviations etc.

So worth spending the £1,000 I've been quoted then? That doesn't seem too bad
