Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
How much were the costs and why was it not dealt with at the time?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Approx 2000 I suffer from depression and when the divorce went through I had left him the house and was sent the bill rom my solicitors and paid it out of my settlement which was 5000 pounds in total I was married for 1985 till 1999 and I have two sons and a daughter from him
It was sad time but now he has remarried and on his feet again I. Feel he should pay those costs ordered by the judge but am I able to do this
