Hi. I am one week from my proofing date and, finally, after two years my husband made an offer. The solicitors and ourselves wrangled back and forth for a whole week and after feeling a lot of pressure I verbally agreed to a 50:40:10 split on the house I am living in with the children (50% to me, 40% to my husband and 10% to be put in a joint account for the children). My husband gets everything else, another house in scotland that he resides in which was the former marital home, the house in Portugal, pensions, savings etc. The draft minute of agreement has been drawn up and he is again dictating the terms. ie., when the house should be sold, who should sell it, how we arrange the money for the children and I am panicking that he will still be able to use this to control and bully me. Therefore, I have changed my mind and want my house to go back to the 60%:40% split that was originally proposed by my solicitor. I will then make my own arrangements for a trust fund for the children without having to have continued dealings with him. Can I do this as nothing has been signed yet or is it too late as we are so close to the court date and I have already made a verbal agreement. I am scared of looking stupid in front of my own solicitor.
Nothing agreed in court. Just at stage of writing up the minute of agreement to avoid going to court a week on Tuesday. Will speak to my solicitor tomorrow morning and tell her I have changed my mind and hope I don't get too much grief.
