While an order to pay your spouse’s legal fees may feel like a blank check for them to take endless actions against you, the judge in your case is tasked with, among other things, making sure your spouse doesn’t abuse the process.
And while judges generally take this obligation very seriously, working with an experienced Brooklyn divorce lawyer can help in asserting your own case strongly, and heading off fruitless but expensive actions on the part of your spouse.
It’s important that a party to a lawsuit have access to good representation, and in a divorce, the lower-earning spouse is often helped by the court ordering the higher-earning spouse to ensure that both parties are protected.
But that doesn’t mean your spouse doesn’t have to negotiate in good faith.
If you’re being hit with actions that you’ll ultimately have to pay for, contact the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino. We protect our clients from unfair and costly motions that are really filed only because you’re paying for them.
