I'm unemployed, claiming benefits and help from family. I've been looking for work but because he didn't let me work for the period I was married to him, I don't have any work experience and therefore finding it hard to get a job.
I used to volunteer and teach occasionally in my home country
I am a Permanent Resident in the UK
yes, he's threatened to kill me in my home country.
How is that relevant?
I have been advised to offer to close the door to maintenance( nominal maintenance) and just ask for a clean break as an incentive for him to accept my offer. Is that good advice?
Also, how do you decide what's realistic?Looking at my needs I feel at least 12 is realistic as it would cover my legal bill and give me 4 on top by the time I would get it. I would like to start a course and build my life again so I can have enough to live the way I used to. Plus I need some money for moving to a new place. My solicitor said it's not needs based anymore. We're just looking to save costs. Any suggestions
no ,just 3000 in total. my legal fee is around 6000 now.
no, she said we could ask for a few on top but don' t expect him to give you more. She thinks 12 is unrealisitc
make an offer of 10 but expect much,much less. And accept whatever you get.
she told me that after I said 20
If you are talking about paying my statutory charge, I was of course aware of that.
she only told me I should not expect much because it's a short marriage.That's all.
Will keep that in mind. Thanks
