I've been trying to appeal to my husband to agree to a fair property settlement for more than 12 months. I have a lawyer who has sent letters to his lawyer also requesting to negotiate a fair deal out of court. My husband ignores all letters and is refusing to give me anything. Our assets are modest but would help me to start my life again with my 3 small children. Whilst I can go to court , my lawyer has warned me the legal fees are so high it's almost not worth it. I am at the mercy of his goodwill which is not comforting since he is determined to punish me for leaving (despite having very good reason to). I don't want to hand everything over to him as the assets could give me a deposit for a house. But at the same time I'm a single mum paying high legal fees for letters and advice. Anyone else?
