There was an interesting article in the Mail on Sunday yesterday about how to keep your legal fees down when divorcing, pegged to the news that footballer turned TV presenter Gary Lineker did his own divorce using Divorce Online. 

Great publicity for that particular website, of course, but it shows how knowledge of DIY law, online legal services, unbundling and direct access to barristers is filtering through to journalists and the public. 

Some of the reader comments underneath are what, frankly, you would expect when it comes to legal fees, but that animosity may serve to grow these alternative trends.
