I am currently going through a separation. As I understand in most cases both parties bear their own legal costs. I myself have a loan agreement with my parents to pay for my legals. My ex has taken out an IVO on me and I have some legal costs (20K) associated with defending the order. My question is can I apply funds from the property pool to pay for the IVO legal costs as this is cost that applies to both parties and is separate from the legal costs of the separation itself? Hope I have explained myself properly. Thanks In advance.
