I felt I should write to thank you for all your support. I realise I have been most fortunate to achieve the offer awarded. Although it always seemed fair, as the pot grew, more than I ever thought, maintenance became a ‘luxury’ rather than a ‘need’. I could see I would have to accept any outcome but I do feel the judge was very thorough and understood the overall situation. Giving evidence was not as bad as I thought either. All in all, this has been a personal win for the family, which will give me choices in life and mean I do not feel outmanoeuvred by other powerful personalities. I am also far more confident to handle financial matters now.
