there is no clear cut answer to that question

the court will look to see if you have the ability to pay for your own attorney fees and whether he can afford to pay for yours

from what you have said the answer is yes

when you consult with an attorney they will go over this issue with you

if you can not afford and he can then the court will have him pay for your fees as well

I have no monies, he's made sure of that. I'm also 61, have several ailments that limits work abilities
Lawyer: Michael Bradley, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

if he has the financial ability to pay then the court will make him pay your reasonable attorney fees

I suggest having a free consultation and going it over with an attorney

if he has cut you off the court can use that as a factor awarding attorney fees as well

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
