Footballers’ Wives (briefly)

By | financial, News | No Comments

Christmas is over, it’s January, and it’s grey and cold out there.

This can feel unfair, as it can mean that the party with the higher income or more assets is the one with the better access to advice. Legal aid used to be available to those on low incomes…
