How are attorney’s fees handled in a divorce and can I get my attorney’s fees paid by the other side?

How are attorney’s fees handled in a divorce and can I get my attorney’s fees paid by the other side? Well, that depends. Attorney’s fees are recoverable or can be recoverable from your spouse if you have the need for your spouse to pay those attorney’s fees and your spouse has the ability to pay them. So need and ability to pay is what determines whether or not any or all of the other side’s attorney’s fees are paid by the other spouse. Often times, you’ll be required to pay your attorney first and then your attorney will seek contribution or reimbursement from your spouse for those attorney’s fees.
