Can a spouse be ordered to pay the other spouse’s attorney’s fees in a divorce?


Yes, in some cases, the court may order one spouse to pay either a portion of or all of the other spouse’s attorney’s fees and costs, especially if there is a significant income disparity between the parties, which party has the “greater access to funds” to pay attorney’s fees. In California there are statutory factors that the Court considers in determining all attorney’s fees and costs requests.
