Approaching The Topic Of Attorney Fees From A Divorce
At the conclusion of your divorce procedures, your spouse may ask you to pay the fees for his or her divorce attorney. This is often a substantial amount for a good divorce lawyer. The California Family Code is designed so that one spouse cannot gain an advantage over the other in the divorce process simply because of an income differential. Winning or defending against a request by the other spouse to pay for that spouse’s divorce lawyer requires comprehensive knowledge of legal divorce and divorce rights. Specific documents and particular evidence must be submitted with an attorney fee motion. At the Law Office of David P. Schwarz, our experienced Orange County divorce attorney routinely and effectively brings – and defends against – attorney fee motions in Orange County divorce cases.
Under California Family Code 271, if one spouse in a divorce rejects divorce agreements and thus drives up litigation expenses, that spouse can be ordered by the court to pay for the other spouse’s family law attorney. And California’s Code of Civil Procedure lets a spouse seek attorney’s fees against the other spouse’s family lawyer when that lawyer files a frivolous motion or other document that is entirely without merit. Experience counts. Experienced Orange County divorce attorney David P. Schwarz will protect your rights in a contested divorce, and if your spouse should pay the legal fees, attorney Schwarz will fight aggressively on your behalf to achieve that.
