I don’t know if anyone can help /advise on the divorce procedure.
I saw a solicitor last year and she has set out a “fixed divorce” quote. I understand the basics of what is included. But the price doesn’t include any billed time for sorting out the details and bearing in mind my husband is refusing to accept I want a divorce I fear legal fees may soar.
I have tried mediation, but my husband refused to attend. I have since received the signed c100 form from the mediator to say that I attended alone. They have offered sent me instructions on how to complete the Court paperwork and have offered me an appointment to assist completing this.
So do I go it alone and complete the Court paperwork, with the assistance of the mediation lady?
Do I just instruct the solicitor ?
Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
We have 2 children. We have a family home in joint names, no mortgage. I have investments and could potentially buy my husband out of the house to keep the family home for myself and my daughters.
I agree you are best avoiding a solicitor, I had to use one as mine was rather complex and in the end it turned out, better than it could have been. I think you should start the process with the help of the mediator.
I would hope your stbx will start seeing sense when they realise this could turn out costly and time consuming and reach some sort of settlement, usually in these things one has to follow a path and hope that things work out which they can.
