My question is with regard to the question on the Acknowledgement

Customer Question

My question is with regard to the question on the Acknowledgement of Service form which asks :- "Even if you do not intend to defend the case do you object to paying the costs of the proceedings? If so, on what grounds?"
The petitioner(my wife) has agreed to pay the court costs for the divorce proceedings so what should my answer be?

Hi ClareThanks for your answer. Are you 100% sure though?
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.
If she has not claimed costs then the court cannot order them.However if you wish to reassure yourself then say "they have not been asked for"
