Paying Attorney Fees in a Divorce
Do you have questions about paying attorney fees in a divorce? In this video, our experienced lawyer discusses the Spousal Maintenance Statute in New York.
Who will pay for attorney fees in a divorce?
The spousal maintenance statute in New York addresses the payment of attorneys’ fees in a divorce action. The statute says that it is a rebuttable presumption that the party earning more income will pay attorneys’ fees for the other party. However, we can present an argument as to why that should not occur. This is a question that is presented to the court, and the court gets to make that determination. We present as much information as we can to show the need for fees, the differential in income, and the reasonableness of the fees being charged in order to obtain that sort of order from the judge.
