Non-EU / British divorce question

I'm asking for a friend. 

Her English husband is filing for divorce. She's not from EU. When married (under UK law) she also got PT residence. 

Where can we find information on UK divorce law online? 

She's a bit older, and not so savvy on the internet. 

Husband is trying for annullment instead of divorce, to speed up procedure.

She's afraid she will lose residency. 

She has a business and shop in PT and active member in community where she lives. 

We have no idea if her PT solicitor knows what rights she has, and how she can get through divorce proceedings in a way that is beneficial for her. 

I would very much appreciate any and all tips to info online or to a solicitor who will work over the internet and is clear about fees upfront before commencing consultations. 

Thanks so much
