Hi, we are at the discussion stage, he refused to accept what I needed, a week has gone by and he now wants to accept what I proposed but has to be by a certain time frame, would I be right in thinking that he's been advised that he would more than likely have to give more and that's why he's changed his mind

Have you had any legal advice about your proposal? Are you satisfied that you have a full picture of the finances? What kind of disclosure have you each provided?

Hi thanks for the reply. Not satisfied that he has disclosed everything but can't prove that he hasn't. My solicitors advice is that to go to trial would cost but I just get the feeling that it might be worth the risk. Why would you not accept a proposed offer but then change your mind. Pretty much straight away. I really don't know what to do.

Does he have a solicitor? He may have decided to change his mind after taking advice. Presumably if you made the offer, it is something you could live with? If that's the case you need to decide if you can face the stress and expense of going through the courts for more. Don't forget you can agree to settle at any time on the way through. You can also self rep in the early stages to save costs.

I don't understand why you have made an offer if you don't think you have all the financial information you need.
