During the pendency of a divorce or paternity case, or after judgment, each party has the right to petition the court for the other party to pay all, or some, of their family law attorney fees and costs. The court is then tasked with ensuring that the parties have “parity” in the ability to engage an attorney. An analysis of each parties ability to pay and the needs of the parties regarding attorney fees and costs is complicated and typically could come into play early in a case.
If you are faced with a request for family law attorney fees and costs, or are curious as to establishing such an award, do not hesitate and immediately contact Singer & Associates to set up a consultation to better understand your situation.
Each case has unique facts and circumstances and this area of law is always changing. Readers are encouraged to seek independent legal advice regarding their individual situation and legal issues. Contact the Fathers Rights Attorney at Singer & Associate Law Office to set up a consultation.
