I have posted previously about this subject .And after advise on this forum have filed for divorce and am awaiting Nisi , and then hopefully financial settlement can be agreed.However out of the blue this morning my ex e-mails suggesting he simply deposits my share of settlement into my account immediately.I am not planning on agreeing to this.However perhaps I should ?Any advice welcomed.
Generally it is good advice not to do anything until it''s all final and formalized in writing. The danger is that if negotiations break down, you will have to go to court. If that happens then you may change your mind about accepting £X. But he will say, "well you agreed to and accepted £X, why have you now changed your mind?"... the onus would be on you.
If you''re absolutely sure that you won''t want more later even if things turn nasty then it''s fairly safe to accept the money - but as for giving him anything in return, don''t do it before it''s signed and sealed.
