Recovery of Attorney’s Fees

During most civil court situations, each side is responsible for arranging payment with his or her own attorney. Divorce, on the other hand, is a special case. It’s not uncommon to find that one spouse has a significantly higher income than the other—in many cases, only one spouse has any income at all, while the other spouse has instead made a full-time job of caring for the children and the home. This could potentially cause an imbalance in terms of both spouses’ access to quality legal representation, which could in turn seriously affect the outcome of the case. Because of this, the court may order one spouse to cover the other’s attorney fees.

By ordering one spouse to recover the attorney’s fees of the other spouse, the court can ensure that both sides are represented fairly and equally. Thus, one spouse can’t steamroll the other when it comes to contesting alimony, child support, and other important matters. A good Anaheim family lawyer can help you secure a recovery of attorney’s fees so that you can focus on success with the issues that matter most.
