Want­ing your day in court.

Some peo­ple want to go to court so they can hear the judge beat down on the other side and say how bad their ex was. Sur­pris­ingly, the judge might not see it that way! Be­sides, court pro­ceed­ings drag out. Emo­tion­ally, it can be like pick­ing at a scab, not let­ting a wound heal – and then there’s the cost…

Spend­ing what you walk away with.

Cash buys choice…and burns a hole in your hand­bag, forc­ing you to buy that lovely Mimco num­ber, oh and the Miu Miu an­kle boots; and af­ter the hell of the past few months, a hol­i­day is nec­es­sary – five-star all the way. I understand the need to breathe and re­group but that money needs to work for you. When it’s gone, it’s gone!

Be­liev­ing you are not ‘ en­ti­tled’.

Do not be bul­lied. Do not fall for the “I’ve worked while you’ve had the kids”, or “I earned this, you didn’t”. Property, in­vest­ments, shares, cash, su­per­an­nu­a­tion – any­thing that has value or po­ten­tial value – needs to be in­cluded in the as­set di­vi­sion and you are ‘en­ti­tled’. You’re look­ing af­ter your kids too.
