I’m separated from my husband but we are still living together. We have no communication and everything is happening through solicitors. We have both completed form e and are awaiting exchange. I was just wondering what the process is. Once our solicitors have exchanged forms does one side make an offer or a request and the other accepts/declines? If we agree does it still go to the courts? I’m so confused by the whole process. Also when and how do we decide contact with the children? I dont want to do mediation as he wouldnt agree to it. Thanks in advance.
