Just got text from POS saying what he wants from our assets (it was stuff I was prepared to give in negotiations anyway) and he is conceding me the rest, including the marital home outright. After last night's verbal sparring he is being very agreeable, but says he just wants to move forward in a positive manner. Part of his sudden conversion of agreeableness might be that he just found out one of his old friends just commit suicide. He says I know him, but won't tell me who it is and says he doesn't want to talk about it anymore. I am always sorry when someone feels the need to take their own life, but I may actually be seeing a light at the end of my own dark tunnel as a partial result. He has asked me to prepare the dissolution paperwork and send to him for his signature, which I will do quickly to strike while the iron is hot!

This sounds good... if it holds. Fingers crossed. You have or will be passing the paperwork by an atty...right? I know after 30 years, we were looking at QDRO's and quit claim deeds, insurance issues... Be sure to CYA!

Definitely by the L first...and don't give him squat without his signature on those papers...and then something to sign saying he as picked up everything so he can't come back later!
