Solicitors dont always act in their clients best interests. Some but not all enjoy ex partners fighting and dragging things out as they earn more money out of it. I would look at your ex offer yourself personally and see what you think of it . Feel free to highlight what he offered and then maybe a few people will say if its reasonable or not. If you dont agree and it goes all the way it cost a large amount of money in the end.
It could be a case where you don’t agree on anything with your ex as solicitors are involved. Unfortunately, both solicitors could walk away with the bulk of your assets which would not be good for your children. The other thing to realise is how much are you actually arguing over i.e. is it worth arguing over £15-20k when it could cost each of you that alone to go to court.
I appreciate the process is very stressful and it would be the same for your ex partner. Possibly suggest mediation as an alternative.
