That depends upon your reason for not applying for decree absolute. The mere fact that financial issues have not yet been settled is not in itself a good reason. If you do not have a good reason your husband's application will succeed and you will be ordered to pay his costs.

How long does it take to get an absolute if the respondent has applied? I understand the petitioner can be next day but its a little more complicated when the respondent applies? Don't they have to sit a short hearing?

There is a hearing, yes, which is why there are increased costs involved which can be significant if one or both spouses are legally represented.
