Financial settlement offer
July 16, 2022 11:16AM
Hi I am going through a very messy divorce has been on going for 4 years. I have a final financial hearing on 1st sept. I had an offer from mr ex which was refused by recommendation from my solicitor, I counter offer over 7 weeks ago and have had no response from his solicitor or his answers to the questions which should have been filed months ago, court date was changed. I am in a poor financial position and my solicitors costs have more than doubled what I was originally quoted and if we have to attend court I can’t afford a barrister. I have asked my solicitor to go back to his and state I am willing to take the original offer and gave a Consent order sent to court. My solicitor is say that she can’t do this she has to wait for his response, I don’t think he is going to as he has lots of money and can afford court expenses ect. Can I send I send a revised offer ?
I would spot I ate you help as my solicitor just seems to be wanting to go to court

Unless your husband's original offer was in some way time limited it should be possible to accept it whether you have made a counter-proposal or not.

Whether it is worth going to court very much depends upon the difference in value between his proposal and your counter-proposal and whether the latter is the one likely to find favour with a court.
