Hello again Clare
1) I have instructed my solicitor as advised. I believe he does not like my instruction and trying to desuade me by saying that the judge would not agree with me. He also said that by disagreeing the "draft agreement (which was not approved) would suggest that I was in conflict with him and the barrister as my advisors and I will have little chance with the judge agreeing with me or allowing me to go to final trial should that be the case. Can he be right?
2) The recorded "terns of settlement" ( he has since said that there is no draft order, just record of terms of settlement, as he put it), which was flawed due to lack of quantification and misunderstandings associated with these, as rightly pointed out by the judge, hence the adjornment. therefore I cannot agree these anymore without the necessary quantification taken into account. Impact of not doing this would be severe for me and my son. Can I reiterate and make this clear to him again- that the basis of terms of the recorded settlement has to be reviewed and reset appropriately?
3) I am also objecting to my ex husband's barrister's insistence that there should be an order preventing me from applying for "cost of educating a child" under the childrens' act. The judge made it clear that I could and my ex husband's barrister was wrong. Hence I would like an order made in respect of this. It was one of my position stated and i would like that to be fulfilled for my son's sake. Is it ok - to re affirm my positon regarding my son's education needs by way of an order being made for this as part of the finacial settlement?
4) He also has special medical needs. I want an order that provide a proportion of cost contribution. Can I do this an under what legal provision?
5) I would like him to pay proportion of the debts he caused in the marriage. He had not explained what he did with his money over a long period of time, at least 16year of 6 figure salary without any contribution to the home whatsoever and lived on me which had been proven. I want his contribution to the family to be taken into account to be taken into account as he has
6) Also, my solicitor stated his letter as this "I note the comments you’ve set out in your email of 29 April timed at 16:25".
As this is the first time he ever reply me in this fashion, recording the time. Is there any significance of this, legally?
I loo forward to recieving your reply soonest
