Any solicitors here who could comment on what I was told by mine yesterday ?
I thought he was such a super person and I immediately liked him but was that because he said what I wanted to hear ? Do they do that just to get the money ??
We each have £37000 equity (50 - 50) he has pension which I have 50% share of. This sol said my 50% share of his pension at a conservative estimate of £100,000 (likely more) but that equates to £50,000. Sol said £37000 of that would be offset against the house - meaning I would get the house - and get it put in my name ? Is that correct ? And the remaining money put aside for my retirement. But this means soon 2bx wont get anything other than his pension which he cant get for another 20 years.
Is this really likely ??
Sol said he felt I stood a very good chance of getting that based on my disability, earning ability, etc (all the criteria on the Matrimonial Causes Act) - against his earnings and lifestyle, but I am so scared.
I dont have any money, I cant risk losing but he seemed so sure ....
Anyone who can give me further advice I would be so grateful.
