Thanks for that. Can you please clarify how to legally 'separate" and how to avoid costs if possible?
So can we simply both sign a piece of paper stating that we are stating on xxx date, and that as far as dividing proprty, the wife (me) is willing to accept $10,000 (for example) in lieu of any further claims as to house or possessions, and that I hereby relinquish any further claims after said payment is made?
OOps, in first sentence "both sign a piece of paper stating that we are stating on xxx date" I meant "both sign a piece of paper stating that we are separating on xxx date"
I'm not interested in half the house or half his money. And I know that this is what is worrying him.
That I might try to get half of everything. So I want to put his mind at rest.
And of curse to avoid any lawyers' fees further down the road!!
That is my last question - so am looking forward to your answer Chris. If you have any other suggestions, I'd much appreciate them too....
