    Im going through a difficult divorce, just wondering if anyone has been in the same position. My ex and I can not agree on anything mainly due to the fact I broke the marriage.

    We are both have solicitors and are battling over the finances, is anymore going through this or been through this. Did you end up at court

    My ex has made an offer, my solicitor thinks I’m entitled to more due to the fact that I need a house.

    Its awful and stressful, I want to go with solicitors advice but also holding the guilt of what I’ve done and want this all to be over with that maybe I should just except the money?!

    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.
