Jo, what you're experiencing is an ugly business and that is the truth on the way divorce Lawyers work. With two Lawyers involved they will do all they can to milk you and your about to be ex, for as much of the assets as they can get. If you have a good idea of what your joint assets are, then go with your own Intuition.
I personally regret not assertively hanging in and being aggressive enough to demand half of the assets, when I was being forced into a divorce after 29 years. I reveal this to you, for the same may happen to you? Wanting it over with to soon, can work against you. I understand your feeling tired of the bills and expenses coming from a divorce lawyer. The interrogatory process probably won't take more than a month or two more, so I guess I would suggest you stick with your Lawyer, and not wing it with your soon to be ex. Just put your foot down, saying to your Lawyer, to continue with his or her valid interrogatory process, and demand appraisals of the joint property, and go for your half, but your wish is that it be brief, or not drawn out much longer.
I wish you strength getting through this.
