DH and I have decide to separate. At the moment we are ok but he keeps bullying me to sign something to say I will only take 7% of everything(which is a lot but I dont think its fair for 20 years of marriage) I would be happy with 10-15%
He has everything in offshore trusts, even our house!!
Ive told him I am not signing anything and hes stopped mentioning it for now, but if I dare ask for more than what he has said he would give me he will get very nasty and it will affect the children.
Im going to see a lawyer in January. WWUD?

You see a solicitor and ignore his nasty threats.
Sign nothing.

Say nothing until you have seen a lawyer. Why should you just take a tiny percentage of your shared ownings?

Definitely don't take such a tiny amount, especially if there are children involved.

No no no don't sign. Get a great lawyer. 15% sounds ridiculously low. I'm sure you'd be entitled to far more.

Don't sign anything. You are probably entitled to at least 50%.

If he chooses to get nasty and effect the children he is a knob.

Go get legal advice in new year.

I thought 50% of joint assets for married couples was 'the norm'?

Remember - this is meant to establish a home for the children as well as you. You're not trying to take money that's his, but use the money which is legally yours to care for your children. Why should your children only be entitled to 15% of a house? What good is that to them?
