How Do Attorney Fees Work in a Divorce Case?

Back to San Diego Family Law Attorney Frequently Asked Questions Videos

So here’s the way attorney’s fees work in a divorce case. The court is required to order one spouse to make a contribution to the attorney’s fees incurred by the other spouse. If the court makes a special finding that one party earns significantly more than the other party and that an award of an attorney fees is appropriate and that the person being asked to pay for lawyer fees is still able to pay for his or her own attorney fees in addition to the other person’s fees.

So sometimes fees can be ordered, but not all of the time. Every case is different.
