I've been reading the forum and I think I know the answer but would appreciate some clarity.
I have a Decree Nisi in 2 weeks and I've been asked to pay the costs if not agreed.
He is divorcing me on unreasonable behaviour and domestic abuse in an attempt to get ILR. Even though it was the other way round.
An arranged marriage abroad. Entered on a spousal visa a year later and we lived together for a month before he got arrested. I didn't end up pressing charges.
His visa has been curtailed and a year later asking me to pay his costs for divorce and spousal maintance as his part time minimum wage isn't enough.
I was wondering if it was worth me disputing the divorce costs as I'm on SMP with a newborn. Unfortunately me and my new partner are no longer together and when I receive the divorce petition I had just given birth and didn't want the stress or large costs associated with a cross petition.
