I understand what you are saying sheath about having a mediator because you can never be sure with lawyers. My ex and I were pretty much agreeable on everything with out settlement and both our lawyers were trying to make us fight over every little thing. It took 6 long months and the lawyers putting the dig in on both ends, especially with me, saying he owed me this and that. Spousal maintenance, child support, lose of earnings blah blah blah which I wavered and then they wanted everything valued up to the last cents which we had also decided we weren't going to do.
The longer they drag it out the more money they make!! Criminal really!
The pre-nup alone has been quoted at $ 3000 and then there is additional for his independent advice! Highway robbery!!
