Resposibility for legal fees


#1

If you truly wanted a divorce, that will be one bill worth paying for and she doesn’t even need to show.


#2

If all you need is an absolute divorce your fees are about $135 and you will pay the fees if you file. Your spouse can wait forever so go ahead and do it if you are ready to have it over. It’s worth it.

No, that’s the court cost. You can easily do the divorce yourself. There are instructions here on the site. Good luck.

I have been legally separated for over a year. My spouse is responsible for all legal fees associated with filing and obtaining a divorce. I want my divorce as soon as possible but my spouse says she is in no hurry and I can pay for it if I want a divorce.

What are my options? Am I at her mercy? Do I have to wait until she is ready? Can I file and present a copy of the agreement to have her billed for the fees?

Thanks in advance,
Wolfie
