I am in a very difficult and all but dead marriage. I am very scared of instigating divorce as h is verbally abusive and I am sure would make things as difficult as possible.

I am just wondering if anyone knows of a good London solicitor I could get advice from?

Contact women's aid.
0808 2000 247
They will be able to help you with local support services.
I hope you get away soon.

Thank you. Will contact them. It's not awful awful, but we are not communicating at all at the moment and haven't for several weeks. This had happened a lot in the past and I have always been the one to bring us back as together as we were ever going to be, but this time I can't do it. Not after he yelled ARE YOU STUPID at me in front of my dds.

But me asking for a divorce would be like a red rag to a bull, and I am sure he would really ramp things up. Think being cut completely and utterly dead. He is very good at doing that.

Scared I am in the same boat, if it helps and have asked for the same advice. Hopefully someone will pm you too.
I have been in this for so long I have firgotten what it feels to be in a respectful partnership. Sad.

Stonewalling - I hate that shite.
I hope you've had some luck.

Yes stonewalling is his life mantra it seems. It used to really hurt but the last two times it has happened I have just thought - bring it on, I can beat you at your own game. I can't live like this forever however.

Thanks for the link Ithought. I will write to them for some info and to see how expensive they are.

If anyone else has any other suggestions I would be grateful smile.

Just bumping for more possible suggestions!

Am scared of how much this would all coat as well. Would there be any way of mitigating the cost?
