Divorce Q&A with our Experts


Our second divorce Q&A, had a few technical problems this month, Lisa was travelling back from the Reading Matters Conference & Sue Atkins was also travelling back from an event, which meant that only Nicola & Chris were able to participate this month, but it was still a great information filled Q&A on divorce.
