Hironaka's theorem guarantees an existence of resolution of singularities in characteristic 0. If I am not wrong, it also guarantees (or at least some other result does), that if the resolution is a singular point, one can get the "Exceptional Fiber" to be a simple normal crossing divisor. Very likely, if the singular locus is of higher dimension, then too one can get the "Exceptional Fiber" to be a simple normal crossing divisor.

However, if the nature of singularity varies along the singular locus, (perhaps) one cannot expect the dimensions of the fibers at each point to be constant in the given resolution.

What should be the most general result known in this direction? Can one expect, for example, a stratification such that inverse image of each strata, is "like simple normal crossing" (eg smooth irreducible components, as well as all k-fold intersections being smooth)?
