Wife Receives Attorney Fee Award Against Husband Before Trial

Wife gets fee award before trial despite husband's aggressive opposition

We took over representation of wife in a pending divorce case in which wife sought a continuance of trial and a contribution from husband towards her attorney’s fees and costs needed to prepare for trial.

Wife retained us late in her divorce case. She had been kicked out of the family residence. She had a trial date in less than a month from the time she retained our firm. Our divorce attorneys quickly assessed her case and determined husband had not completed mandatory disclosures within the timeframes required by law and that she could successfully seek a continuance of her trial to help prepare for trial and to seek a contribution from husband towards the fees and costs she needed to get her side of the case ready for trial. 

Husband aggressively opposed our request to continue trial and lost.  Husband then aggressively opposed our request for a contribution towards our client’s attorney’s fees and costs.  The Court ordered husband to pay $15,000 of our client’s anticipated fees and costs before trial within 30 days.
