Q: I filed thinking we would agree on the settlement, she came back asking for way more than her fair share. Next step?
In her response she came back asking for more money, more property, demanding she stay on my cell phone plan, and I have to keep her on my health insurance. I agree to her request for the health insurance and VA education benefits per eligibility requirements with Tri-care and the VA. I have started working on a new agreement with some of her requests. I just don't know what the next step would be for the negotiation. Do I need a lawyer or paralegal?
