I have my FDR mid-July in London and have just parted ways with my solicitor as costs became prohibitive. I live outside of the UK, but my husband lives and works there. I was going to self represent, however, have a small amount set aside for a reasonably priced barrister. I know nothing about British law and feel a barrister would be extremely helpful. Married over 20 years, My husband makes 6x what I do, I was a stay at home mother until recently, and this is very important for my family''s future. Any suggestions of a reasonably priced barrister would be appreciated, as I don''t know where to start. Thanks in advance!
Many lawyers say barristers are only as good as the instruction they receive, that instruction really need to come from the solicitor who knows the case and the main points and issues, its ok if you have a decent knowledge of law, but you say you know nothing so even if you instruct a barrister they are on the back foot from the get go, do you have the file from the solicitor?.
Ill dig out a link for direct access barristers, it would be worth your while calling the wiki line so they can recommend one with experience matched to what you actually need, many think a barrister is a barrister so what does it matter, it matters because barristers tend to specialise which is why you need help to chose one.
Thanks so much! I made some calls and I think I may have found one. I do have the file and I made a counter proposal to his proposal of settlement. We will see what happens. I''m now nervous that if we do negotiate and agree on points, what am I supposed to do next?
