STBEX and I have been separated for a year now, he had said in January that he would be proceeding with the divorce. I haven't heard anything about it since and now I'm fed up of him dragging his heels. Out of principle I think he should be the one to pay the divorce, as it is more what he wants, but left to his own devices he could drag this out and I just want a fresh start now.
Has anyone been able to get their ex to pay the court fees, I think you tick a box on the application if that's what you want.
You can try but usually you have to pay your own fee's. I have got a court order on my ex to pay some of the divorce fees he offered to pay half the original fee £250 but he's got to pay £1500 it's not much when you think my solicitor bill is currently 10K and rising.
