Wife Obtains An Attorney Fee Order Against Husband in a Divorce
Homemaker wife gets attorney fee award against husband
Our divorce lawyers took over representation of wife in a divorce case in which wife needed help paying her fees and costs of litigation.
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 well over $200,000 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 contributive share 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 $25,000.00 in fees and costs to wife to help her prepare for trial.
