Advice gratefully received as I feel very vulnerable and at the mercy of my solicitor, and, as a previous post, being treated badly cos of legal aid
I filed for divorce on my solicitor's advice, as, though he left in June, he was stalling on taking action, according to her, for financial reasons- to hide money etc.
He has returned the papers to court and is not defending, but I now feel left high and dry as I don't feel like anything's happening.
What should I be asking for now.
He's a high earner- he has money from the sale of a joint second property sold 3 years ago which I stupidly let him put into his account- etc.etc
Have not applied to csa for child maintenance because I'm scared of rocking the boat- he's paying all the bills on the FMH for me and my daughter-14, also have a son 20 and have been married nearly 22 years
He comes round once a week and makes a big issue of giving me 100 pounds cash.
It feels like he's still controlling me
I don't work as never have-only part time at points in the past - but now care for my elderly parents, one disabled, as an only child
I feel like my life's over at 43 and have nobody to talk to
Dont get too down, i was, going through ancillary relief , but do get as much
information for yourself, research, and have that confidence, you will definately
get your share, please cheer up, i have been so down at times, but please get the
ball rolling now, the longer it takes, the more complicated it becomes, so get on with it now, love ruku
Have spoken to my sol to find out that they have a letter of 'proposals' from my husband
The main thing is that he has 28000 left of the 147000 from the sale of the second property. He is proposing 20000 to go to the mortgage and then 4000 each- I want all the 28000 and more cos I never had a say in it
