I am the respondent in my divorce and agreed to pay the £340 for the divorce petition and a further £45 for the cost of presumably the Decree Absolute(?). In a letter from me STBX''s solicitor I was instructed that they saw fit that I should pay these costs. It also stated that I will have to pay a further £45 once the process is complete / nearly complete.
I have received the notice of proceedings today and the Acknowledgement of Service. Point 6 of the latter asks if I object to paying the costs of the proceedings - have I not already done this? If not how much do I have to pay? On what grounds could I object?
I am self-representing if that makes any difference, I can''t afford a solicitor.
Do you have in writing what costs they are asking for, if you do then you don`t object to paying providing it is £340+£45+£45, the £45 is for the Decree Absolute i assume the other £45 is for a Consent Order.
