Hi, sorry if its been posted before but I am finding the site difficult to search.
I was awarded costs last year at nisi stage. The respondent was given 3 weeks by the court to request to vary/revoke the costs before the Nisi was granted but they didn't.
On receipt of the absolute, I have made 2 requests for payment outling the costs which were just solicitor costs (giving them 6 weeks in total to repay). Do I now complete form N252? If so do I have to wait 21 days if they don't respond and then apply for N254 to get a default costs certificate?
I was represented by a solicitor until the nisi was received and then went LIP. Can I now add costs relating to me chasing the payment as well?
It is tempting to instruct the solicitor again to recover the costs as this is all a bit over my head!
Thanks Charles. The costs are for the issue of petition and solicitors fees in relation to the divorce, submitted by my solicitor. The Order just states that they will pay costs and there is no text in relation to 'costs to be assessed if not agreed'.
