Avoiding court over division of property was created by omnivariant
Just discovered this forum and I am wondering if anyone encountered such a scenario.
We have 2 properties; (to make it simple) one is worth 100k and the other is 200k.

Wife (petitioner) wants 85% of 200k property and 70% of 100k property as part of the financial settlement.
I tried to offer her the 200k property and I keep the 100k property.
Our one adult daughter lives with her in the 200k fmh.

I thought this is fair but if she wants to fight over this in court, is it advisable for me to say that, \"if we go to court, I will want to fight for 50-50\"?
This is really to cover the potential costs I might incur.

And will her solicitor actually allow her to fight for what I feel is an unfair claim?

Thanks in advance.

Not enough information as all depends on other factors but if you both need a single bed property to house you both then It won’t make sense having to split multiple houses if one is already suitable

Appreciate you taking time to respond. I agree...many other factors could come into play. However, I think all other are near enough settled and nothing out of the ordinary.
