Customer Question

I am the resndent in a divorce. recenty the degree nisi has been granted. The solicitors costs are becoming too much for me to cope wth. At this stage is it too late to leave my solictor and let mt spouce get on with it, or has it gone past the stage where I will need the solicitor. If this can be done would there be implications against me?
