Case Details

Robert Farzad Reverses Huge Reimbursement Claim Against Father and Ex-Husband

When Father came to attorney B. Robert Farzad for representation, he was at his wit’s end. A court appointed referee who was a retired court commissioner had found that Father owed Mother close to $160,000.00 in reimbursements for what Mother called unpaid and uninsured medical expenses and what Father claimed were unreimbursable private educational expenses. Father had represented himself in the proceeding with the referee and in Orange County family court. Mother had a lawyer.

Case Results

B. Robert Farzad took over the case and set the Court’s order assigning a referee as well as the referee’s recommendations aside due to the violations of Father’s due process rights and the Court’s order not complying with California law. He successfully unwound the harmful recommendation by the referee against Father.

He then filed an attorney fee motion against Mother because she made a significant amount of money more than Father and Mr. Farzad requested the Court order her to pay Father’s lawyer’s fees. The Court made an initial order of $15,000.00 against Mother and set another hearing to potentially order more. Mr. Farzad also investigated Mother’s allegations and had compelling evidence that Mother’s $178,000.00 reimbursement claim was more than 90% private educational expenses for which she had no legal right to seek reimbursement.

Before the trial and the next attorney fee motion, Mother agreed to dismiss all of her claims forever. In addition to the $15,000.00 she was ordered to pay Father, B. Robert Farzad, also worked out a settlement where Mother paid Father $10,000.00 in child support.
