If you are withdrawing your petition because your ex paid up, then you would not be entitled to attoney fees and costs anyway.
Please note that I am answering this question as a service through Avvo but not as your attorney and no attorney-client relationship is established by this posting. An attorney-client relationship can only be established through signing a Fee Agreement and paying the necessary advanced fees.
Recouping the fees are never guaranteed in any event, but if you made an agreement it will be difficult to back-pedal.
