Once.is.enough is on a distinguished road

Not that simple. They settled rather then court. They were common law not married. Her income did increase during relationship his did not. 28 k diffrence in earnings. Rather than fight they negotiated a figure for the unjust enrichment claim and a lump sum tax discounted spousal claim. It was lower than what it would have cost her in legal fees to fight. I think the op may find herself in a similar situation.
There is no point in spending 20k to avoid a 15k claim.
