12 Dec “I feel like I’m being bullied by my ex to settle for a lot less than I deserve in my divorce settlement”.
Many people are surprised at how much their ex can change towards them when divorce proceedings begin. Finances can be a highly emotive issue especially if lifestyles will have to change after a divorce, as they often do.
Sadly bullying is a common tactic used to make you feel that you have had enough and it may be better just to walk away than stand and fight for what is rightfully yours.
If you feel pressure to lower your expectations then consult your legal advisor on what they think you are entitled to. Most people have to make spending cuts after a divorce so to help you understand how this will affect you work out your monthly budget.
Remember that there are many benefits to getting out of a bad relationship and moving on without your ex. You need to focus your mind on these positive reasons to move forward with your life and not give up the fight.
Take legal advice and fully explain your situation before you make any rash decisions, especially if there are children involved. Reacting in the moment and giving up maybe something you live to regret when the situation has calmed down in years to come.
