Interesting. A rather painful experience - but not for reasons I was expecting. Wife went 30 minutes before I did - a bit of form filling re legal aid - NOT ELIGIBLE - and then a discussion with Counsellor as to what she wants etc. Then change round and I go in - form filling for legal aid - NOT ELIGIBLE - surprise surprise.
Then it was the joint discussion with us both present. It was very amicable - forms re finances were explained - and possibility that things could be resolved amicably were discussed - wife mooted that I got 40k - a 30% share - I suggested 40% as advised by solicitor. So
