Pregnant and unsure what to do. Deeply upset/frightened and my life is out of balance. Ex partner left me not on good terms, I’ve been trying to get in touch in order to at least just talk it through. Instead, he keeps blocking me and spreads lies about me in circle of friends instead of talking to me. I’m also in bad physical health and pretty exhausted…
I’m want to prevent any of this bad behaviour going forward and the idea is to try and have him sign an nda/Confidentiality Agreement and THEN talk. I am aware, I cannot force him to attend a meeting with me but … in my thinking I am hoping that at least an official invitation letter that comes from a law firm will make him realise the seriousness of the situation and that he’s got responsibilities?!
My aim is: He realises the situation/his responsibilities and finds an agreeable solution TOGETHER with me and sticks to whatever we agree (without further drama etc).
Please don’t just pick on my idea – I would like constructive ideas/advise/lawyers who won’t break the bank to draft an nda/confidentiality agreement and on how to make this work is appreciated!
