Are you sure you share is 3k, that seems very high.
Who you pay depends on if your ex has payed the solicitor, if they have then you owe the ex if not you pay the solicitor, any which way i would ask your solicitor deal with it, then you have a full record of the transaction.
dukey. thanks, the ex was claiming that i pay for all the divorce costs and was willing to go to court over it. it probably is too high and i feel like ive been mugged but its a price im willing to pay to ensure a smooth resolution to this divorce process
