thank you Rubytuesday, that''s what I thought. My husband has everything he needs including new house. I had to move away to find work and live in rented room. marital home empty now. Husband has no interest in our property and I fear will never settle finances as he is sitting pretty. I am worried my solicitor has agreed to this though. I spoke to a Wikkidivorce solicitor who advised delaying Decree Absolute, but my solicitor''s reply was that I should not read wikkidivorce!
