It looks like I can’t get James released from the mortgage. That’s not good news. I have to discuss this with James it means it will be more difficult for him to borrow money to buy a place for himself. The financial disclosure queries are still rumbling on and that could impact the house conversation. Marilyn was not satisfied with the answers received to her written queries about James’s disclosure. We really should investigate his high levels of anticipated monthly spend, particularly as the children will spend most of their time with me – or so we intend. That’s another area we need to sort out. She’s going to write back to his solicitor and request a round table meeting with James and his solicitor.
I really don’t feel comfortable with the way this is panning out. It doesn’t feel that James is being fair or straight with us. Whilst I’m not looking forward to a face-to-face conversation about money, I do agree that it’s the only way forward. I will not have my children penalised because we are splitting up.
