Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Did you actually claim costs on the D8 - (petition form)
Did a solicitor issue it for you?
So - you have claimed costs and are about to apply for the Decree Nisi - is that correct?
Then that is when to claim costs
The order that the Judge will make (without any prompting from you) is that the costs are to be assessed if not agreed
The Court fees will definitaly be covered - and the Court usually has a set figure for legal costs - likely to be less given that you are now dealing with the matter in person
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
