The Legal Ombudsman has published a report on divorce which highlights hidden costs and poor quality legal services can make the process more distressing for separating couples.
One divorcee, Sam Feely, told the BBC she had a traumatic and stressful experience and costs that "escalated out of control".
The report reveals that around a quarter of divorce complaints relate to cost.
