I have been invoiced for the costs of my ex wife in our divorce after 8 years. I have never been aware of this. The old solicitors that acted for her have been taken over and they are now billing me for her costs. The divorce was 2006. I have never been made aware of this before now. Am I liable after all this time?
I was never made aware of whether the court ordered me to pay the costs but it appears that they asked for this. I had no knowledge until today. It is £1309 which they want. They have never invoiced me before and the new company have traced me through DWP. My ex wife has always known where I live and for 2 years after the divorce I was living at the same address which the solicitors had. Can they do this after 8 years if costs were agreed at court?
