I know almost nothing about divorce law (the only divorce I ever handled was my mother's, and that didn't go wholly to plan) but one phrase in particular stuck out: "it is an irrebuttable truth that family law doesn’t need lawyers."

Erm, no: anything involving the law will often/always/ occasionally [delete as appropriate] benefit from lawyers being involved. There are no limits to the ways in which folks, in any given situation (including divorce), will contrive to make the position more complicated than landing a spaceship on the dark side of the moon, and lawyers can certainly help avoid/mitigate/prevent that happening (the complication bit, not the dark side of the moon, obvs).
