I am the Respondent in my forthcoming divorce. A few weeks ago I received a letter from the courts giving details for the pronouncement of the Decree Nisi and an order for the Petitioner to pay the Respondents costs. Having nothing to oppose (as in the order) I waited for the ''certificate of entitlement'' to arrive, which it duly did. However, the certificate states that the Respondent is to pay the Petitioner''s cost; this was done without notifying me of the change thereby removing my opportunity to oppose it. Can the court simply make this change and I have to accept it? If not what should I do, I am currently receiving legal assistance (legal aid) and hope to get public funding where necessary.
Having reread this forums sub-category I think my post may be in the wrong section, if so please advise which I should use, Thanks.
