Really not happy with my Solicitor at the moment - going to Court on December 10th and the other side seem to think it's a 50/50 split.
I paid the deposit on our home, paid all the fees and have maintained most of the payments on the mortgage for eight years. He has been financially a mess throughout the marriage, almost bankrupt at one point. Do I have to sell my home and give him 50%
You may be unhappy with your sol because you don't like what you hear???
A court will decide the outcome based on the 'needs' of each party. If you posted up your details, finances, ages, pensions, kids?, equity in house, mortgage, incomes etc; etc; you will get some good advise here, on how a Judge may make his order, (or advise on what you can argue).
Then you can compare what your sol has advised, to what us little folks think, based on our own experiences!
There is no 50-50% ruling, it's just a starting point in all financial settlements.
