I am not able to resolve this matter on my own as my sol. is giving me vague answers and need your help please. Any body can give a rough idea to how much lum sum shal I ask for instead of my supposed maintenance. What happens is that I am offering to stop my maintenance after 5 years when my daughter will finish her full education and her maintenance will stop naturally. hopping that in this time I will finish retraining and I will find a convieniant job (I am unimployed ) .My daughter and my supposed maintenance is 1500 all togather? my x sallary is 3700 per month. How much money do you think it is fair to ask for to stop my maintenance with my daughter maintenance after 5 years knowing that I am 50 years old already and I am not very sure of getting the job in the future but I would prefer to sease any deal with him at that time.
