The lawyers should go back and re-open the divorced decree to require the husband to pay their fees directly to them and by-pass their client. The fee portion of the decree can be paid to and held by the clerk of the court. They can still enjoin the husband from paying her all the money and do it in the divorce action itself by modification of the final order. The divorce court has continuing jurisdiction.
