2k!! Gosh you got off lightly .
It was an extra 12k for me ... shocking waste of money and no chance of comeback .
Total bill nearly £30k (me) and £20 (him - legal aid).
I did though "win" in effect ... if I had settled for what he wanted at FDR (as opposed to what the judge said was fair) It would have cost £20k.
Actually what he got was not only what the judge said at FDR ...but also pretty much what I had suggested first time I went to see the solicitor. That is what happens when you are dealing with someone who won''t negotiate, has a VERY awkward solicitor, and wants the judge to decide ... . He could have had his money, we could have saved the costs and perhaps now I could help my daughters out at uni ..
