Hi, I need some advice on how to retrieve my court costs.
My former wife and my self agreed to go halves with the cost for the decree nisi
She agreed to pay £505 towards the costs via solicitors
The consent order
made no refernce to court costs but my solicitor says that the costs for the decree nisi
are a completely seperate matter which means she is still liable to pay her agreed conrtibution.
would the above be true and how would I apply to the court to retrieve her share of the costs ?
That's correct. Once you have decree
, the costs of the divorce itself become enforceable. As a matter of strict law, I suppose if she fails to pay the amount agreed, You would have to have the costs assessed by the court. However, you could probably ask the court to summarily assess them at the amount agreed, assuming that this is evidenced in correspondence.
