Attorney Fee Reimbursement
Dothan divorce attorneys assisting our clients recover attorney’s fees in Dothan, Abbeville, Ozark, Enterprise, Geneva and all of Southeast Alabama
Often, parties to a divorce action in Alabama have a widely divergent access to liquid funds to pay an attorney. The party with the most income, or that handles the bills can access cash to hire a divorce attorney, where the other spouse cannot. Sometimes divorce proceedings can be lengthy and therefore expensive. You may not have enough cash to live, much less hire a competent divorce attorney.
Most judges recognize the need for both spouse’s to have qualified attorneys, and want to protect the rights of the spouse who does not have the financial ability to pay for an attorney.
Because of this, divorces are one of the few legal cases where Courts regularly require lawyers fees be paid by the spouse with more financial security. If you don’t have the entire attorneys fee up front, doesn’t always mean you can’t afford a lawyer. In fact, that is probably the very situation in which you can’t afford NOT to have a competent divorce lawyer.
If your spouse has significant assets, but won’t give you access and is encouraging you not to hire an attorney, call us. The Dothan divorce lawyers at Parkman White, LLP will make every attempt at making your spouse pay your attorneys’ fees, in addition to alimony, child support and a property settlement.
Do not let your lack of access to your marital cash keep you from consulting with our divorce lawyers in Dothan, Alabama. Depending on the case, we may be able to agree to an attorney’s fee arrangement that allows you to pay the bulk of the attorney fee after the case is complete.
