Thank you for your question
My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you.
The Judge is not happy that the proposed settlement is entirely fair and wishes to be certain that you have either had legal advice - or been told that you should take it.
All you need to do is write to the court and say that you have been told to take independent legal advice but have chosen not to take it
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
If you wish
Why did you accept this agreement?
Are you living with a new partner?
The judge rejected this agreement because it is inherently unfair.
Why do you not force the sale of the house so that you can get a new house that your children could stay in with you as well?
Two of your children are adults and one has moved out.
It is unreasonable for you not to receive your full share of the equity now that he has moved his new partner in - and you can in fact force a sale if you wish
You should also receive a Pension Sharing Order receiving between 30 and 40% of his pension pot.
If you wish to give this up then write to the court and say that you do not wish to take legal advice
