We don''t wish to sound harsh or rude but really it is the best advice.. You don''t want to go through what some of us have. You want to stay squeaky clean and reasonable during the whole process.
I got shitty with my ex and she took all I had (and the court backed her too) we had kids you don''t so might be different but just don''t go there.
Your a business man., You must treat your wife before during and after the divorce (if you have any contact with her) like a business associate. Pull out all the emotion and concentrate on what you want to achieve. Best way even if it is hard
If you can both keep calm and polite, splitting finances should not be too stressful.
When two people divorce, all the real heartbreak comes when trying to sort out contact arrangements regarding the children. Unfortunately not everybody can manage to do this amicably and many dads find themselves alienated from their children.
Get rid of the video tape and stay whiter than white. When you finanally move on you will be glad that you did.
If your wife hasn''t already seen a solicitor she will do eventually. My husband said he''d walk away and leave me with everything! That''s all changed, he''s split the funds in the bank 50/50 and told me I have to pay all the household bills and 50% of the mortgage out of this and when it''s gone it''s gone. He now wants me to
Pay 50% of an endowment he has about 18 months left on, in his name the endowement payment is £5 a month, how petty is that and that from a man earning in excess of 100k a year. THAT IS NOT THE HUSBAND IVE BEEN MARRIED TO FOR 22YEARS!! I don''t work haven''t done for years as we have had a few developments on the go so I would oversee them.Try and get free advise from a solicitors on how best to split the finances go with all the info on the business etc, then you''ll at least know the worst case scenario.you have to realise she''s not the same woman you have been married to. The other thing is you really do have to switch your emotions off and deal with it like a business transaction, I am only starting to do that now 15 months on ( and I still love him, and I miss us),but he shows no emotion to me at all, I now know he only thinks of himself and ow. Take the lead and try and be one step ahead of her. Good luck.
