Q 6 Divorce Petition about Costs
On the Acknowledgment of Service form, question 6 asks if I object to paying costs, even if divorce is undefended. On the actual divorce petition it states the petitioner will claim the costs if defended. I'm unsure what to write in box 6. I don't object to paying if ordered by the judge but I won't be defending it so is it likely he/she will order me to pay the costs or the petitioner? I'd obviously like the petitioner to pay the costs. If I write "no I don't object to paying even if undefended", does this mean I will have to pay costs even though petitioner has stated "the respondant be ordered to pay costs IF DEFENDED". Sorry if my question seems unclear.
