Wife Obtains An Attorney Fee Order Against Husband in a Divorce
Wife retained us for her divorce case about halfway through her case.
She was not satisfied with prior attorney's lack of diligence.
Husband owned his own company and made hundreds of thousands of dollars per year while wife historically was a homemaker who primarily raised their young child.
Yet, wife came to our firm with a 50-50 custody order and temporary spousal and child support orders based only on what husband's forensic experts stated his income was at the time.
Our divorce lawyers successfully motioned the Court for husband to pay a contribution of wife's attorney's fees and expert costs for her to obtain her own private forensic evaluation of husband's cash flow and value of the community business. The court ordered, over husband's attorney's objection, for husband to pay a reasonable amount in fees and costs to wife to help her prepare for trial.
