CONTROLLING legal costs is one of the main themes in the 1992 edition of The Which? Guide to Divorce, published last week. The author, Helen Garlick, says: 'One recent UK divorce cost the couple pounds 1m, so getting your solicitor to fight for you could be an expensive exercise for little gain.' The guide has been updated to concentrate on 'the challenges and problems faced by couples in the '90s'. This means new information on child abduction and domestic violence as well as on the needs of stepfamilies and rights of grandparents.

Copies of the guide, published by the Consumers' Association and Hodder & Stoughton, are available from the Which? bookshop, 359-61 Euston Rod, London NW1 3AL, or from the Subscription Department, Consumers' Association, PO Box 44, Hertford X, SG14 1SH. It costs pounds 10.99, including p&p.
