Playing silly games over divorce?

Okay, he's done all sorts of things that have of course cost me more money, e.g. 'forgetting' to let his solicitor know he's moved.
He was asked for a list some six weeks ago of what he wanted from the house. Nothing. Nada. Thing is, he has a list which I gave to the solicitor, so it's only a case of adding one or two things to it. If I ring and chase it up, of course the solicitors will charge me. I do think this is a control thing. Anybody know if there's anything I can do to get things moving. I just want it sorted and he knows this. Ideas gratefully received!

I don't understand why you need to speak to a solicitor or chase it at all.
You have a list, you gave it to the solicitor, end of.
What am I missing?

Yes, as above....if he doesn't shout up now that he wants it, he doesn't get it, I would have thought. It is annoying when they drag their feet though, I sympathise.

I want to move. I can't move until he decides what he wants, what he's doing. He knows this. It's frustrating and it's being used as a form of control.

You get your solicitor (yes, I know it'll cost but ) to write a letter giving a deadline by which the list will be provided, and a further deadline by which the items are to be collected. Failure to provide a list, or failure to then collect, is to be deemed as him forfeiting rights to those items.
