Hi,

A quick question. My stbx applied for the divorce online and requested I pay the costs. Since then she has taken on a solicitor. I have been ordered to pay the costs (presumably £550). Do I pay her or does it go through the solicitor? Should I receive a bill?

A court order?

I ticked the box on my stbx's application agreeing to pay costs and now realise she paid the £550 from the joint bank account (as we had previously agreed). She says her solicitor told her to tick the box. She is under the impression that I will have to pay ALL the costs she now incurs for the whole divorce process - Am I right in thinking that ticking the box means I just have to pay the £550 for the application?

The application fee and the solicitors costs for preparing the petition and submitting it.

Contact her solicitor and ask for an invoice. If you're not happy with the amount you can ask court to assess it for a fee.
