My STBX and I have exhausted any chance of negotiation, a series of offers over 18 months have resulted in being no where near. We have considerable assets so this is not a needs case. The youngest child is now 18. Marriage 30 years. We just need the financials decided. His best offer so far is 41.5% to me with nothing for children at uni, or any spousal maintenance despite huge difference in earning potential. Why is my STBX advised to go to court instead of arbitration? My sol says arbitration is best for both of us - quicker and cheaper. How can I convince STBX to go to arbitration? Is STBX''s solicitor just trying to make more money for himself??
