Where warranted you may be awarded attorneys fees
It often happens that the opposing side has created circumstances that cause the cost of your divorce to escalate unnecessarily, such as refusing to provide necessary documentation (Discovery), or worse, refusing or obstructing parenting time with your child, causing you to enter litigation, or willfully causing costs to escalate for all kinds of reasons of non-compliance or non-cooperation. If this is the case, after your divorce proceedings are over, you may have cause to ask for Attorney’s fees from the opposing party. Your attorney will tell you if you may have sufficient cause to request your attorney fees, and whether making that request is worthwhile (perhaps your now ex has no means of repaying your fees). Sometimes the court allows only a portion of your request, sometimes all, sometimes the court grants nothing, but if your attorney feels the request is justified, you may have a chance to recoup some if not all of the costs of litigation.
