i was meaning when her solicitor puts together an offer and i have come out of the family home with virtually nothing it will probably cost me 5-7 K to furnish, would a court take it into account as im guessing her offer will be poor judging by her behaviour.think it will go to court anyway,
An offer is an offer, you can take it or leave it. And you can make whatever counter-offer you like. If you want to say "I want £6k more because I need to buy new household items" to her solicitor then go right ahead.
Good luck convincing a court that you need £5-7k to furnish a house!!!
good god pal not sure where you shop or the last time you bought anything but decent fitted wardrobes are 1K, decent bed the same, cooker 500, washing machine 400, fridge/freezer 400, table/chairs 1000, settee £2500, unless i go to Aldi i suppose, all adds up,
Like I said - good luck convincing a court of that...
The maximum you''ll ever get from a court for household possessions is 50% of the second-hand value of the FMH contents. After all, if you want to spend 2.5k on a sofa, why should your ex pay 50% of that? If the positions were reversed I doubt you would be happy to buy a £1k fitted wardrobe for your ex?
