They are merely "positioning" in the event (and likely the lawyer's hope) that the two of you will now fight instead of doing what the two of you wanted to do - settle things amicably. If there is equity in home etc. lawyers ogle that.

your ex, however, should have independent legal counsel (ILA) to ensure that she isn't being snookered and that the agreement the two of you cooked up is fair, and in line with current legislation. Actually, it is preferable that the two of you have ILA.

Down the road you don't want your ex coming back to you for money with a claim that she was pressured into the agreement and had no idea of her "rights."
