Just fainted at the lawyers bill I've just received and feel very, very low. I have no money left and think I will now have to put the breaks on and let my bastard ex pay me the pittance he has proffered instead of carrying on in court. I'm gutted. Absolutely devastated, especially as it was HE who wanted the divorce.
Has anyone else has the nasty shock of the lawyers bill??
My lawyer charges £28 for each email he reads and £28 for replying. That's not including VAT. Haven't been emailing him so much lately. Unfortunately they like to be paid as you go along because of the very real risk your divorce settlement will be less than the final bill. I have never spent so much money on anything except a flat.
Mine has been billing me each month and I've spent £11k since Xmas. That was only for financial negotiations and dealing with my narc ex. We haven't even been to court! Mine charges by the hour, broken down in to 10 minute slots. I couldn't afford to go to court but I know i would have got a better deal.
