Attorneys Fees in Divorce

Asking for Attorney Fees in Court

The Family Law Court may order either party to a divorce processing to pay an amount reasonably necessary to the other party's attorney fees and costs to maintain or dened the proceeding under Family Code Section 2030(a).

Attorney fees awards can be common in cases where a low income spouse must pay high fees to discover and prove the other spouses high earnings. The court may also look at:

  • The fees involved
  • Time taken to litigate
  • The attorneys success in his efforts
  • Skill required in handling the litigation at hand
  • Billing invoices

Generally a request for Attorney Fees to be awarded is put in pleading format by our trained Paralegals. Thereafter, a court hearing will be conducted and the court will rule on the motion within 15 days.
