Who pays the attorney fees in a Divorce?

Your Attorney can ask the court (by filing a Petition) to order the other party in the case to pay your attorney's fees, if that person is in control of the assets. The statute in place providing for the payment of interim attorney's fees allows for the immediate payment of attorney's fees to the attorney of your choice, to be paid by the spouse in control of the family wealth. It is now easier, because of this statute, for spouses not in control of the family wealth to hire competent counsel and seek immediate relief from the court for payment of prospective attorney's fees.
