Why would they want to?

They could just apply themselves after the time limit.

There is a school of thinking that the petitioner should start and conclude a divorce and that if the respondent is forced to make an application to the court, they should seek their costs of the application.

Whether this holds water is a matter for the judge hearing the application.

If application for [url=Glossary/General/Absolute.html ]absolute[/url] is made, does this void any chance to fight out terms of financial settlement?

No, the [url=Glossary/General/Absolute.html ]absolute[/url] only end the marriage, not either party's claim on the marital assets.
