Do you think it's right?

Husband and wife are getting a divorce, they both agreed. Went to the courthouse, filled out the papers. Only husband paid his share. Now they have an appt and wife was told to pay $125. and she tells husband she don't have it. She calls to cancel the appt, they tell her she cannot and now she has to bring husband. Would it be right for husband to pay her share as well???

  • uhmmm mmmmm I think if they both want to divorce that who pays upfront to file doesn't matter. If she wants to be rid of him and thats the only way to speed things up even a little bit she'll take his money and maybe even pay him back. If he really wants to get rid of her he'll gladly pay to speed things up. He can include re-coop of the fees in the assets division if he wants too.

    It could turn out to be afriendly divorce which would be great.

  • If he wants a divorce he will pay.

  • I guess it would depend on whether or not he wanted to pay it. If he is the one who wants the divorce, and he wants badly enough to be rid of her, then I guess he would be glad to pay it. If she is the one who is wanting the divorce, I don't think he should pay her part to get it. If the divorce is a mutual decision, then he should be allowed to decide whether or not he wants to pay her part. If she can't pay $125, I wonder how she thinks she is going to be able to live on her own.

  • i think it depends on the relationship they have or plan to have after. if they are goin to be friends then y not and let her pay it back later and if he cant stand her then no he shouldnt then again if he wants to leave her bad enough he will pay.

  • my husband went through this with his ex. when they split, she agreed to pay for the divorce because he was filing bankruptcy for the debt she acquired while they were together. well she never fulfilled her part of the bargain and he ended up paying the majority of the divorce. she managed to come up with a little bit of the money to help.
