Dear anyone who can help
Its been a traumatic year but this site and members have been so wonderful I cpi;d hug everyone but I would need octopus arms.
I would be grateful if anyone could share their experience or advuce or examples:
stbx and I have received the Nisi but he has refused to settle out of court and so we have to go to the second FDR on 28th Sept each with a barrister.
I have been asked to perpare a narrative statement to be exchanged with ex spouse by this Friday detailing my contribution to the marriage.
How does anyone suggest I break this down to make it readable? He left me for my friend having been discovered having an affair with her but has now moved onto someone else ( a guy) his sexuality is veside the point but do I need to make reference to it? And am I ecpected tp document my grievances or just foreseeable needs? We have the Nisi but can''t apply for Absolute until finances resolved. No children, he is ten years younger than me and I was the higher wage earner until I had a car crash three years ago.
Many thanks for any help as it is very stressful ( no surprise there)
I would suggest a brief passing to the change of personal circumstance but keep it mainly to the financial aspects or be prepared for someone to tell you that you are being "bitter" - legal speak for hideously disapointed and betrayed - being on the loosing end of the stick is always to someones advantage and you can bet two ways it will not be yours.
