An amicable divorce is the obvious aim of everybody.
Wrong. It certainly isn't!
Many divorce solicitors are used to helping people through (especially the initial) explosions of anger, fear and shock. For some people the whole idea is to wound and to hurt the other. We always advise strongly against this. Unpleasantness costs a lot, I mean a lot! Not just in terms of the increased cost of divorce but, perhaps more importantly, in the emotional costs to all concerned.
This is a link to a simple guide to an amicable divorce.
If it helps just one person, then I'll be happy.
