my wife applied for divorce after 10 years. I went ahead as we had no children under sixteen i also agreed to give her half my pension. It turns out that my wife applied for legal aid and got refused and then reapplied and got accepted even though she works full time in a local hospital. I have now got a billfor £1700.00 for her leagal fees £800 of which is from rolls royce for the pension splitting. Surely i must have some rights as i thought it was a simple divorce and i feel as though im getting penalised even though shes getting half my pension its even costing me more money. I am sure that she did not qualify for legal aid what can i do.
yes initial writ states to find defender liable for any expenses imposed by said pension .to grant warrant to this initial writ upon rolls royce and to find defender liable intimate to the pursuer in expenses. but she never had any expenses and legal aid covered this of which now i am expected to pay even though i dont think she should have been accepted for the legal aid in the first place i feel as though i have been hoodwinked as i signed for the divorce thinking that it was a simple divorce and i was not opposing the sharing of the pension.
they want 100 per month i can only afford 50 would they accept this under scots law and if i feel if my exwife shouldnt have received leagal aid could i pursue this and who to.
